JAPAN | 89 minutes | 1966

The quintessential yakuza film, gutsy, out of control and unsurpassed. An uncompromising artistic rebellion.
At the time, Suzuki was on the outs with his producers. He was going too far with his bursts of surrealism and radical aesthetic. They cut his budget. That didn’t stop him — he shook up the gangster genre beyond what anyone had ever dared imagine. A timeless film and a masterpiece of the Japanese avant-garde. Gorgeous, weird and radically pop!
