Storyline

When a cop is transferred to a new precinct it is obvious that the area's yakuza mob are not dealing with just another policeman. The cop is bent on results and is not immune to becoming rough in order to get results. Matters take a different turn, however, as the policeman juxtaposes the nature of his targets with his own colleagues, examines their actions more closely and becomes acquainted with a woman on the fringe of the criminal underworld.

Fukasaku style Yakuza Cinema
8 January 2017 | by (Belgrade, Serbia) – See all my reviews

Kinji Fukasaku, in my opinion one of the best directors in history of Japanese cinema, most known in the west for his movie Battle Royale (2000), but not many people know of his earlier work. In the 70's Fukasaku directed many movies which main theme is Japanese Mafia more known as The Yakuza. Every movie in that decade is pure gem. Yakuza Graveyard is also one of them. Everything in this movie is superb, directing, shaky camera work, acting and music, it is very moving and fast pace which is unique to Fukasaku, he was really ahead of his time. The most i love about his movies are main protagonists/antagonists and their rebellious attitude which is totally different from expectations in Japanese society. This time main character is played by fantastic Tatsuya Watari, also seen in Graveyard of Honor, even he is better in this one, such a great performance, also worth mentioning beautiful Meiko Kaji, only you can see such natural beauty in the east. Like previous movies, it is full of action, violence, sex, rebellion in Fukasaku's way. I also like how he portrayed police force, and their lack of honor and corruption and ties to organized crime. Definitely a gem in history of Yakuza cinema and Japanese cinema, must see if you are fan.
