The film that led Seijun Suzuki's studio to fire him. Mocking
everything from censorship to gangster films, this twisted vision of
Japan's underworld follows Hanada Goro, the mob's "No. 3 Killer," as
he loses his grip on his career, women and reality and the "No. 1
Killer" makes Goro the target of a cruel cat-and-mouse game. Through
it all, Suzuki thwarts logic and convention with stunning visual
tricks and disorienting narrative leaps. With its blues score,
brilliant black-and-white cinematography and dark humor, Branded to
Kill is a triumph of style and purpose. "Suzuki's masterwork. Terse,
deadpan, and terrific" (Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times). Japanese
with English subtitles. Letterboxed.
