Yes, it looks pretty. Very pretty indeed.

But its very Stalinist*. Its very “Yay for Tyrants!”

And after that, it becomes “poor Tyrant, he just wants to be understood…”

So pretty but disturbing. Personally, I’d have chosen the other way, see “Against a Dark Background” for further details.

Should I mention the continuity errors about swords stuck in people’s chests? You have to go between the ribs, not through them. That’s what a morning spent doing iaido does for you.

*Should I say Maoist? Maybe that too, but definitely Stalinist.
