  • Radiance Films Releasing Tokijiro: Lone Yakuza

    Coming 8/25/24, UK and North American release.

    Weary of the rigid codes of the underworld, gambler Tokijiro (Kinnosuke Nakamura, Goyokin) wanders Japan in search of freedom. But escape proves to be impossible when an obligation to a gang boss leaves him with no choice but to kill a man. To atone for his crime, he vows to take care of his victim’s widow and young son. But the gang won’t rest until they’ve killed the entire family - including the man who stands in their way. With this breathtakingly stylised film, Tai Kato broke all the conventions of the yakuza genre, fusing blood-spurting action with melodrama worthy of Japanese cinema’s greatest masters.

    This is a good one! Saw it in 35mm about 5 years ago in Laputa's 35 movie Kinnosuke Nakamura retrospective.
