“Lady Snowblood and Her Love Song of Vengeance”

At Syfy Wire, friend of the Gutter Sara Century writes about Lady Snowblood. “Regardless of everything, the most important part of the Lady Snowblood mythos is Yuki herself. The compelling study of a woman who is beautiful on the outside but a demon on the inside might be nothing new for its time period, but there is certainly something to be said for her specific brutality and how it contrasts with the empathy that audiences and the other characters develop for her over the course of several films. Yuki does get revenge, but it is never her revenge, and it doesn’t make her happy. Instead, she is left to wander, fulfilling her destiny as a weapon of vengeance, but losing everything in the process.”
