  Bright Lights Film Journal | Uchida Tomu: Blood Spear, Mt. Fuji
Chiba goes on to speculate that the domination of films concerning romantic love during the first half of the decade reflects popular discontent with the lack of freedom to pursue romantic love in culture.
Tomu’s choice of the song for the film's conclusion harks back to his previous enthusiasm for militarism and his respect for Amakasu, a man of action who died in his arms upholding the samurai ethic.
Nevertheless, the film seems to suggest that, though the feudal frame may be flawed, the violence at the center of the samurai ethic of chugi (samurai loyalty) is an object worthy of conflicted respect if considered within the wider frame of sober criticism of the entire feudal system.
