50th Anniversary!

This seminal work of the Japanese New Wave from the legendary Seijun Suzuki is an explosion of style that almost wasn't. Suzuki was hired last minute by the Nikkatsu production company to retool a script and was often coming up with ideas the night before the shoot or on set. When his film failed to connect with contemporary audiences of the day, he was told by the studio not to «make movies that make no sense and no money,» and was promptly fired. The twisted story sees a yakuza assassin with a fetish for sniffing steamed rice botch a job and consequently place a target on himself.
