Tokyo Drifter
Tokyo nagaremono | Seijun Suzuki, 1966
Japan | Japanese with English subtitles | Format: 35mm | 83 minutes

Touting a killer soundtrack and stringently observed masculinity, this winner from Nikkatsu master provocateur Seijun Suzuki bleeds copious amounts of cool. Tetsuya Watari stars as reformed yakuza assassin Tetsu, a man with dead-aim (and the ability to make a powder-blue suit and white shoes look menacing). In the face of double-crosses, shootouts, and former rival gangs that just won’t let him retire, stoic Tetsu remains unflinchingly loyal to his code of honor. With Hideaki Nitani.
