(aka 'Gendai yakuza: hito-kiri yota' or 'Street Mobster')

directed by Kinji Fukasaku
Japan 1972

 

  In the tradition of Takeshi Kitano, Sergio Leone, and George Romero, Japanese action director Kinji Fukasaku (Battle Royale I and II, The Yakuza Papers) brings to life Street Mobster, the story of a violent killer who will stop at nothing to satisfy his lust for blood.

Released from prison, gangster Isamu Okita plans to start his own gang and begins a reign of terror using beatings, prostitution, stabbings, and murders to fight his way to the top of the gangland world. Street Mobster is a look into the dark realm of Japan's criminal underworld, where anything can be had for a price.

Comments:

This is image is slightly superior to "Graveyard of Honor" - in that it is tight the frame edge. It still has that forgivable heavy and slightly soft appearance but color and contrast again seem deft. Efficient subtitles and original audio plus a very interesting extra feature in the cloaked interview with a former Yakuza, if only to further the mystique of the films guarded appeal. Genre specific viewing, but it does have another niche cultural draw of sorts.   out of
