'Branded to Kill' is one of those films that feels so far ahead of its time, we may still not have caught up to it. The violence is raw, the sex even more so, and the monochrome photography is flawless.
Reputedly one of Seijun Suzuki's finest works and unquestionably very stylish in its 'Scope framings (Jim Jarmusch copied a few shots from it in his Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai).
Occasionally mystifying, but always witty, inventive and dazzling to look at.
Despite not following the rules and forgoing a traditional three-act structure, the film still manages to be engaging mostly thanks to the creative visuals and fantastic cinematography.
Cult classic? Try one of the greatest films ever made.
An arresting cocktail of sex, violence and surrealism, shot in monochrome hues which accentuate the perversity of the entire twisted venture.
Director Seijun Suzuki outdid himself with this astonishing blend of yakuza movie, film noir and nouvelle vague.
Genuinely fascinating and bizarre.
More of an instant hit than a slow-release of pleasure. But well worth it.
Handsome; mad; haunting.
Branded to Kill is a drunken dream of a film; the kind, once slept on, you can't believe you ever really saw.
Branded To Kill thrums along to an irresistible hard-bop beat, with effortlessly stylish black andwhite cinematography and set-pieces straight from a pulp fiction fever dream.
Hamada, the #3 killer with the rice-sniffing fetish, finds himself in trouble with the Organization after he falls in love with a woman with a death wish. BRANDED drips with 60s cool and is a near-perfect work of neo-surrealism in that, although the details often don't make sense, the big picture always does. Contains the memorable scenes of Hamada assassinating a man by shooting up a drainpipe and botching a hit when a butterfly lands on his gun barrel.
Nonsensical violence with some of the most poorly choreographed gunfights you'll ever see. A macabre train-wreck of a film that draws you in by appealing to that warped, illogical, action-craving part of your brain that everyone has and few acknowledge.
Not the weird for the sake of being weird movie that I expected but has many unconventional & absurd moments, Overall fun & funny
Style made into substance. Just like Hausu, this is another movie that feels like it droped from some alternative dimension. Writting a review for this is beyond the point, you either going to dig this or not. Even if you end up disliking it by the end the fact will remain, there's no other movie like Branded to Kill, and will never be.
