it wasn't exactly bushido, but similar. i was doing bujinkan ninpo taijutsu, and so it embraced a lot of the ninpo mikkyo and so forth - students were often referred to as "buyu" as in a traveller in the way (the way being "budo"). it was pretty deep philosophical stuff, ended up being miles over my head which is why i switched to something else in the end. i still got a lot of good things out of it, though.

but didn't like the exaltation of the Japanese code of Bushido.

Really? Bushido is the most valuable Eastern philosophy I can think of.

The way of the warrior is to consider oneself as dead so that one can serve his master with absolute loyalty. While one cannot adopt Bushido as it stands, there is much of value for a Christian to mine from this material. Consider that your daimyo is Jesus Christ and reread the texts.

I often have a copy of Yamamoto Tsunetomo's book close at hand.
Not to give any spoilers, but there is two instances where characters take the "honorable death" route by killing themselves; and it is portrayed as very noble. 
"The World Must Conform to Our Lord and not He to it." Rev. Dennis Fahey CSSP

"My brothers, all of you, if you are condemned to see the triumph of evil, never applaud it. Never say to evil: you are good; to decadence: you are progess; to death: you are life. Sanctify yourselves in the times wherein God has placed you; bewail the evils and the disorders which God tolerates; oppose them with the energy of your works and your efforts, your life uncontaminated by error, free from being led astray, in such a way that having lived here below, united with the Spirit of the Lord, you will be admitted to be made but one with Him forever and ever: But he who is joined to the Lord is one in spirit."

This. Killing yourself wasn't considered a sin. My grandma tells me that women used to carry knives specifically to kill themselves if they were "dishonored by a man." To quote her: "There was no such thing as rape. If a man raped you, you killed yourself."
"Make merry, and be glad: for this thy brother was dead, and is come to life again; he was lost, and is found."

My wife and I.

It has some swearing, and some raunchy dialogue, but it's not Pulp Fiction level or anything. No nudity. Definitely not for kids. So really it depends on your own tolerance for language..

 Be prepared for the fact that it is over two hours long-- you will need lots of snacks.

Thanks Erin.

I like long films.

I do not mind harsh language, neither does my wife BUT we cannot stand taking the Lords name in vain.

Such as

"Oh G-d"
G--dammit"

I agree that the Japanese and others may not consider it a sin, but that doesn't mean that it isn't a sin; just the same as some of the practices that the Missionaries in America found that the Indians were practicing; they were part of the their civil code but were still sinful.

i'm not disagreeing with you about that; however it makes sense that it would be depicted as noble, as thats the way they looked at it. doesn't mean it is, just that it was considered to be.
