Sukiyaki Western Django (2007)

Acclaimed Japanese director Takashi Miike’s (Ichi the Killer) Japanese Spaghetti Western features two gangs, the Genji and Heike, as they face off in a town called Yuta. A deadly gunman comes into town to help a prostitute get revenge on the warring gangs. Western audience will recognize Quentin Tarantino in an extended cameo as the mysterious Ringo, who delivers one of the best lines in the movie; "What can I say? I’m an anime otaku (geek) at heart." Which leads one to ask, how twisted/crazy/cool would a Quentin Tarantino anime movie be?
