In this deliriously unhinged yakuza film by visionary director Seijun Suzuki, a recently paroled ex-con attempts to go straight but is immediately hounded by former cohorts and rivals who want him dead. A highlight of 1960s avant-pop Japanese cinema replete with over-the-top set design and swinging enka ballads (performed by actor-singer Tetsuya Watari), Tokyo Drifter displays the full breadth of Suzuki’s unique visual style and surreal sensibilities.
