Nikkatsu Noir: A Colt Is My Passport - Eclipse Series 17
Criterion Confessions... Nikkatsu Noir: A Colt Is My Passport - Eclipse Series 17. "...The final film in the Nikkatsu Noir boxed set is easily the best. Takashi Nomura's 1967 fugitive picture A Colt is My Passport stars Joe Shishido as a hitman on the lam. Paid off by one crime boss to kill another crime boss, his plans to scarper out of the country with his partner, Shun (Jerry Fujio), are scuttled by the dead man's loyal gunmen showing up at the airport to block their way. One ingenious getaway later, and the two guys are hiding out by the wharfs, missing one departing ship after another, their freedom receding over the horizon."
