Film: Gojoe
A samurai film by avant-garde director Sogo Ishii, which takes the long-standing Japanese myth of Yoshitsune and Benkei and turns it on its head. The valiant Yoshitsune (here Shanao) is now a power-mad super-ninja; the brawling Benkei was once a thief but is now a repentant Buddhist monk.

Not to be confused with G.I. Joe, of course.
