...plays like a mix of spaghetti western and samurai melodrama relocated to the pop-art splendor of 1960s Japan...

It's the camera trickery and the playful art direction that send up the entire image of the badass yakuza to begin with.

Distills the aesthetic of the 1960s into one feature-length blast.

A falta de coesão narrativa é mais do que compensada pelo visual marcante concebido por Suzuki, que cria uma fantasia psicodélica através da direção de arte estilizada, da fotografia com cores marcantes e da música-tema repetida continuamente.
| Original Score: 3/5

Narrative common sense is abandoned for fractured, highly satisfying storytelling.

A 1966 yakuza gangster thriller with a pop-art look by the formidable B-movie director Seijun Suzuki.
