Classic Japanese Yakuza thriller from visionary director Suzuki Seijun. Tetsu is a former hit man who has now joined his boss Kurata in going straight. But old rivalries soon lead to outbreaks of violence, and Tetsu, decked out with a stoic attitude and a handsome powder-blue suit, decides to leave the city in order to draw the heat away from Kurata. What follows is a vividly-designed pop odyssey complete with bursts of stylized violence and an off-beat genre-defying logic.
