Pistol Opera Dirigida por Seijun Suzuki
Opera is Suzuki at his most intoxicated. Reversing (if not repealing) Branded’s misogyny by casting a woman in the central role, the film circles back on itself endlessly; characters die and reappear, scenes shift without warning, and the sparse dialogue is of the “Your silver bullet is crying” variety. Impenetrable but fascinating, it’s a fitting memorial for a filmmaker who defied explanation.

I first saw Seijun Suzuki’s Pistol Opera (2001) in early 2002, and half a year later I served on a jury at an Australian film festival that awarded the movie its top prize, calling it “a highly personal blend of traditional and experimental cinema.” I can’t think of another film I’ve seen since that has afforded me more unbridled sensual pleasure.

A stylish hit woman, a guild of killers, and a competition for the title of top assassin are the ingredients in this outlandish reconfiguration of Japan’s popular yakuza genre. What counts isn’t the convoluted plot or exotic characters – it’s the brilliance of Suzuki’s cinematic style, articulating the action with eye-boggling color and split-second editing effects.
