Critics reviews

A madcap, candy-colored, pop-art nonsense comedy following a group of assassins, members of the “Killer’s Association,” who devolve to infighting when a non-accredited hit-man turns out to be a better marksman than any of them. It’s Frank Tashlin meets Mr. Freedom, filtered through the eye of Seijun Suzuki, and it’s one of the most brilliant satires Japan ever produced.
