Description

Suzuki Seijun Film Series:

Tokyo Drifter
(SUZUKI Seijun, 1966, 89 min, Japan, Japanese w/ English subtitles, 35mm)

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 Suzuki Seijun’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. Rare 35mm print.
