Branded To Kill: The Criterion Collection

When Japanese New Wave bad boy Seijun Suzuki delivered this brutal, hilarious, and

visually inspired masterpiece to the executives at his studio, he was promptly fired. Branded To Kill tells the

ecstatically bent story of a yakuza assassin (the chipmunk-cheeked superstar Joe Shishido) with a fetish for sniffing boiled rice who botches a job and ends up a target himself. This is Suzuki at

his most extreme-the flabbergasting pinnacle of his sixties pop-art aesthetic.
