Home / Now Showing / TOKYO DRIFTER
Looking to go on the straight-and-narrow and leave his life of crime behind, former Yakuza enforcer, “Phoenix” Tetsu, is forced to look over his shoulder to avoid execution by rival gangs. In this delirious jazzy gangster film, Seijun Suzuki makes full use of psychedelic color and stylized violence to take us on a highlight of the brilliantly excessive Japanese cinema of the sixties.
