YAKUZA DOUBLE FEATURE EXTRAVAGANZAMANIA!
Let a bottle of cheap scotch be your guide through these great Yakuza flicks from the 60’s. Get ready to see Joe Shishido tear up the scene with his distracting cheek implants (true story!) and grand machismo in Nikkatsu’s A Colt is My Passport (1967). Next up is Japanese New Wave director Masahiro Shinoda’s Pale Flower (1964). Ryo Ikebe and Mariko Kaga are sublime as a newly-released yakuza hitman and a self-destructive young woman, respectively.
When you’re finished don’t worry, there’s more where that came from.
