(aka 'Jingi no hakaba' or 'Graveyard of Honor')

directed by Kinji Fukasaku
Japan 1975

 

  Action director Kinji Fukasaku (Battle Royale, Tora! Tora! Tora!) created one of his most unusual yakuza films with Graveyard of Honor, a highly stylized account of the life of Rikio Ishikawa, a strong arm man who works for one of Japan's biggest crime families. In one brutal scene after another, Fukasaku documents the downward spiral of a sociopathic thug who will do anything to survive in Japan's decadent underworld of drugs, murder for hire, and prostitution. Graveyard of Honor is a brutal and unsparing look at the modern Japanese yakuza—men who live without a code of honor.

Comments:

Another good job by Home Vision - a good, but not perfect image. Contrast and colors seem excellent, but it is slightly soft in spots and there is a black border framing the film prohibiting full horizontal resolution. Considering the film to be 30 years old though, and the clandestine nature of its existence - it is more than acceptable and the new wave of Fukasaku fans should be 'honored' themselves. Subtitles are, as always, perfect from HVE and they really went the extra mile digging up those Bonus features, which really add to the detail of this fine package. Monaural original audio and this is as well presented as the film has ever appeared for home entertainment.out of
