Tokyo Drifter: The Criterion Collection

In this jazzy gangster film, reformed killer Phoenix Tetsu's attempt to go straight is squashed when his

former cohorts call him back to Tokyo to help battle a rival gang. This onslaught of stylized violence and

trippy colors got director Seijun Suzuki in trouble with Nikkatsu studio heads, who

were put off by his anything-goes, in-your-face aesthetic, equal parts Russ Meyer, Samuel Fuller, and Nagisa

Oshima. Tokyo Drifter is a delirious highlight of the brilliantly excessive Japanese cinema of the sixties.
