  6. Ghostman's rating of the film Tokyo Drifter

    Tokyo Drifter is one of the coolest films ever made.Directed by Seijiun Suzuki, the film is lovingly made and is filled with outrageous and eccentric touches as Suzuki attempts to make Tokyo Drifter into every movie and not just another Yakuza movie. It's crazy and certifiable and I can see filmmakers like Jarmusch and Carax loving it and being influenced by it. if you can't vibe with it, then watch it again.

  7. Jdsarmientoburgos's rating of the film Tokyo Drifter

    A Noirish crime-drama part of the experimental Japanese New Wave craze, lush with style, colors and random singing and whistling. Almost too slick for its own good.

  8. Ma-rewind's rating of the film Tokyo Drifter

    Comme parfois avec Suzuki, bon, l'histoire... Mais les couleurs! La musique! Les cadrages! Le rythme! Le côté pop 60's! Et ça, ça vaut tout l'or du monde.

  9. ejonline's rating of the film Tokyo Drifter

    My responses to Suzuki's movies really depend upon which order I saw them in. Tokyo Drifter is the first of his movies that I came across. I found it a bit intoxicating in the way that it threw typical cinematic grammar to the wind and soaked in the bold color schemes and seemingly Brechtian acting style that he was going for. In subsequent viewings of his other movies he seems simply incoherent and thus, less fun.

  11. Nicholas Gregory's rating of the film Tokyo Drifter

    Uninviting in its talky and dull gangster politics that connect the action scenes, while its characters and story never deeply arouse the emotions-- even despite its garish, eye-candy colors and jazzy-pop score-- more than for a surface-level connection. It's cool in its look and feel often, but while style can sometimes fill in for substance, it too has to elicit deeply felt emotions. It doesn't here.

  15. cineholic's rating of the film Tokyo Drifter

    5/10. Though the production design is lovely and many of the colors pop, TOKYO DRIFTER is style without much substance: what exists of a story is nigh incomprehensible.

  16. Latias's rating of the film Tokyo Drifter

    Short as it is the film is still too long for its story (slow pace). Bold colors to show personalities of characters (innovative for the time) and render various atmospheres. Like comic strip thus surprised to hear that Sutsuki never used storyboards! The discussion among 3 people near the end is really Kubric.

  17. Dr. Q's rating of the film Tokyo Drifter

    This is a great movie, the sound, the imagery, the colors, the dialoge, sure, some would say its a bit soppy, but that's an element of style here

  18. Lex Lucas's rating of the film Tokyo Drifter

    Pure fun in this yakuza ballad with total freedom in colors

  19. OLIVER-J's rating of the film Tokyo Drifter

  21. FISCHER's rating of the film Tokyo Drifter

    Peu importe l'intrigue, la trame policière étant transgressée par une mise en scène fascinante, déconcertante de trouvailles visuelles et stylistiques. Une oeuvre essentielle en avance sur son temps... www.cinefiches.com

  23. Aaron Dillenbeck's rating of the film Tokyo Drifter

    The colors... oh god the colors!! Great cinematic eye. Trades substance for style and it totally works.

  24. Chris's rating of the film Tokyo Drifter
