Hannibal Lecter: Samurai

The scene in Hannibal Rising where Hannibal Lecter (played by Gaspard Ulliel) is all done up in Kendo gear and sparring with Lady Murasaki (Gong Li) is one of the most bizarre things I've ever seen. Hannibal the Cannibal receiving samurai training? I think that classifies as a 50 megaton pop culture warhead. Watching that scene in theaters was pretty amazing. I wanted to giggle and cry at the same time.
