There is no film more emblematic of the late great director Seijun Suzuki's pedal-to-the-metal aesthetic than this. Color on color is the name of the game with the jazziest gangster film this side of Melville's LE SAMOURAÏ. Reformed hitman Tetsu is offered a spot in a rival gang just as he's leaving his life of crime. When he refuses the leader's offer, a deadly game of cat and mouse ensues. A parody of the yakuza genre as well as an homage to Westerns and the avant-garde films of the time, the picture throws everything at the screen, and it all sticks.
