...rings changes on the themes established in the first film.
when it comes to genre, Ito, like his protagonist, just will not be confined or restrained, making Jailhouse 41 as aesthetically striking and deliriously weird a WIP pic as is ever likely to be made.
Kaji is so sinister, she utters fewer words than even Arnold Schwarznegger's Terminator.
It wouldn't be crazy to say this might be the greatest WIP film ever made. Ito is aware of how by-the-numbers the genre can be, and decides to approach this as a surreal nightmare. It makes the first film almost looke like an Ozu movie. You don't even have to see the first one to enjoy this one, but it certainly helps, just to give Kaji's character a bit of background.
The greatest WIP film ever made. So good that it completely trancends the genre. Plus, Meiko Kaji is beautiful, yet truly scary at the same time, something many Hollywood actresses have been trying to accomplish, but few have succeeded, Her performance is great in this stylish and gritty film. Quentin Tarantino used Meiko Kaiji's excellent theme song for this in Kill Bill.
