I, the Executioner

Minagoroshi no reika

Directed by Tai Katô
Japan, 1968


What links the murders of five women with the suicide of a 16-year-old delivery boy? Plodding cops (one with a bad case of piles) investigate, and solarised flashbacks eventually provide a denouement, but the near metaphysical ending ensures that the mystery somehow lingers.
