Movie Info

Japanese director Seijun Suzuki solidified his growing cult following with this offbeat adaptation of Haruhiko Ooyabu's crime novel. Jo Shishido stars as Det. Tajima, a smug investigator who nabs a pair of criminal gangs with flamboyant aplomb while the police remain baffled. Suzuki treats the rather hoary plotline as an excuse for dark-humored camp, and young audiences were delighted with his irreverent approach, which made him one of the few distinctive names in the '60s assembly-line of Nikkatsu Studios. ~ Robert Firsching, Rovimore

[Seijun] Suzuki directs it all with tongue-in-cheek attitude, not so much making fun of it as making it fun...

Parallax View

The movie is still fun today, but it definitely has lost some of its original bite.
