About LONE WOLF AND CUB: BABY CART IN THE LAND OF THE DEMONS

The first act of Baby Cart in the Land of the Demons feels almost like a video game, as Itto Ogami and Daigoro confront assorted sub-bosses while collecting coins and enough data to lead them to their final target, with Ogami’s combat skills put to the test by five different warrior-messangers. And yet, balancing physical action with Buddhist musings on life and death, this is the most spiritual of the Lone Wolf and Cub films. As the grim tale progresses, we’re brought right back to the series’ traumatized beginnings, when Itto Ogami is hired to kill a 5-year-old girl and her parents, and accepts the job. This film was director Kenji Misumi’s 4th and final contribution to the Lone Wolf and Cub series, and his second-to-last film before his death in 1975.
