JAPAN | 99 minutes | 1967

An infernal duel between two hit men bent on annihilating each other. Delirious destruction and an ecstatically twisted storyline for an inimi- table high art/low art mashup.
This time, the bent humour of Suzuki’s off-the-wall cinema was too much: the studio brass forced him to work in black and white. No matter, since he just pushed the yakuza film into a whole new realm. Audacious and hysterical, Branded to Kill is the filmmaker at his most extreme. A masterwork of Japanese cinema backed by the sublime Joe Shishido.
