Despicable protagonist, but outstanding filmmaking, 4 April 2012
Author: zetes from Saint Paul, MN

Tamio Kawaji (the star of Seijun Suzuki's Story of a Prostitute and co-star of Youth of the Beast and Tokyo Drifter) stars as Akira, a jazz-fueled sociopath who sticks up his nose at society while committing all sorts of crimes with his best friend Eiji Go and prostitute Noriko Matsumoto. To get back at the man who put him in jail, Akira kidnaps his girlfriend (Yuko Chishiro), rapes her and gets her pregnant. Much of the largely plot less film is made up of Akira's shambling around Tokyo, followed by hand-held cameras and scored with American jazz music. Akira is one of the nastiest characters I've met in Japanese cinema, which is saying a lot, but the filmmaking is truly exciting and the black and white visuals are outstanding.
