Directed by Seijun Suzuki
Year of Production: 1966
Duration: 1h 29min
In this jazzy gangster film, reformed killer Tetsu’s attempt to go straight is thwarted when his former cohorts call him back to Tokyo to help battle a rival gang. Director Seijun Suzuki’s onslaught of stylized violence and trippy colors is equal parts Russ Meyer, Samuel Fuller, and Nagisa Oshima—an anything-goes, in-your-face rampage.
Tokyo Drifter is a delirious highlight of the brilliantly excessive Japanese cinema of the sixties.
