Branded To Kill

Branded To Kill Midnight Eye... Branded To Kill (1967) by Jasper Sharp. "...Born in Tokyo in 1923, Seijun Suzuki directed 42 films for Nikkatsu, averaging on about four a year, and he claims he could edit each in about a day. Despite being lauded by the critics for his unique visual style, as far as the general public and Nikkatsu president Kyusaku Hori were concerned by the mid-60s Suzuki's approach was beginning to spin rapidly out of control." Also... an Interview with Seijun Suzuki from 2001.
