Movie Info

Japanese auteur Seijin Suzuki directs yakuza icon Akira Kobayashi in this typically stylish tale of a feared bodyguard caught in the middle of a deadly battle between two powerful crime bosses. Katsuta (Kobayashi) works for Izu, and when overly-ambitious rival boss Yoshida makes a desperate power play, Katsuta is obligated by oath and honor to defend his boss to the death. Though his mission is clear, the sudden appearance of a seductive femme fatale from Katsuda's past finds his lust

Audience Reviews for Kanto Wanderer

Seijun Suzuki has made some wonderfully weird films. This, however, is actually one of his more accessible offerings, but still pretty strange. Kanto Wanderer serves as a prime example of a director honing his craft while taking chances and still producing fine entertainment. Backgrounds suddenly turn bright red, blue or yellow during dramatic changes from scene to scene, while other background colors might represent certain characters. It's a well crafted film with nice compositions but ultimately, Kanto Wanderer feels less on par in comparison with Suzuki's other films such as Tokyo Drifter, Branded To Kill and my personal favorite Youth Of The Beast.
