Straightforward Suzuki is still awesome
31 May 2009 | by (Saint Paul, MN) – See all my reviews

This was made slightly before the time when Suzuki began to experiment with the medium more radically. That would be Youth of the Beast. This one is more straightforward. Yet it is not any less entertaining. The guy was a heck of a director, even when he was apparently bored with what he saw as generic assignments. Jo Shishido stars as a private detective. He is hired by the police to infiltrate a yakuza gang to help them stop their gun running ring. The story doesn't always make a ton of sense, but it moves along so quickly that you might only realize it later. Shishido is awesome, and the film includes three wildly colored musical numbers (at night clubs - it's in no way a musical). Jo Shishido even joins into one of the numbers, which is just orgasmic!
