This Japanese anime offers some striking visual ideas and an intriguing concept that blends the look and loner ethos of a Sergio Leone western with the crumbling, gothic settings and imaginative violence of a Mario Bava horror film. Directed and written by Yoshiaki Kawajiri, the film is the second in a series of "Vampire Hunter" pictures based on a popular novel-size comic book written by Hideyuki Kikuchi and illustrated by Yoshitaka Amano. The protagonist, known simply as D, is powerfully reminiscent of the apparently amoral bounty hunter played by Clint Eastwood in the Leone films. He is a determined loner and a forthright mercenary until at last his underlying nobility is revealed by a selfless gesture. - Dave Kehr
