Retaliation
Shima wa Moratta | Yasuharu Hasebe, 1968
Japan | Japanese with English subtitles | Format: 35mm | 94 minutes

Star Joe Shishido in person on Oct. 1!

Hasebe’s hardboiled New Action take on underworld turf wars pits tough guy Akira Kobayashi as an ex-con gang leader against Joe Shishido. Steering clear of romanticizing the underworld, the story plots out the cutthroat tactics and amoral diplomacy required to remain on top. Nikkatsu stalwart Yasuharu Hasebe, who went on to direct the Stray Cat Rock series, had worked with Joe Shishido on Massacre Gun. With Hideaki Nitani and Meiko Kaji.
