Sekushî chitai is in an exciting crime action film which follows the excellent film Ôsen chitai in a highly entertaining film series, directed and written by Teruo Ishii .This wonderful fourth instalment takes us onto the streets & into Tokyo's entertainment districts. Behind the glitter, the underworld, murder, and an illicit lucrative prostitution racket. A thrilling drama unfolds after innocent Hiroshi becomes the victim of a beautiful street smart pickpocket. The action-packed tale twists and turns, stylishly filmed on location, with wonderfully creative b&w cinematography, terrific characterizations, and is accompanied with a cool Jazz score !... Highly Recommended
