From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Daisuke Itō (伊藤大輔 Itō Daisuke ?) (12 October 1898 - 19 July 1981) was a Japanese film director and screenwriter who played a central role in the development of the modern jidaigeki and samurai cinema. Especially in the silent era, he was known for a very mobile camera style that earned him the nickname "Idō daisuki" (Loves Motion), which is a pun on his name. His heroes, such as Sazen Tange and Chūji Kunisada, were often disaffected, nihilistic loners and thus Itō's early films were sometimes considered tendency films. Itō worked with many great jidaigeki stars, especially Denjirō Ōkōchi, Kinnosuke Nakamura, Raizō Ichikawa, and Tsumasaburo Bando at studios such as Nikkatsu and Daiei, in a career that spanned nearly half a century.
