Uzumasa Limelight is all about the nostalgic regret for the passing of the golden age of samurai cinema. It tells a tale of a fading and unique tradition of cinema, the art of dying on screen in samurai movies, and draws on the history of lead actor Seizo Fukumoto to reveal the skill at the heart of what can be overlooked – a dramatic death that takes up a few seconds of screen time.
