  1. the_mentaculus's rating of the film Yakuza Graveyard

    There is some telling stuff about a rapidly changing Japanese society here, with veneers like "cop", "yakuza", "half-breed", "traitor" and "whore" not meaning a whole lot against Watari's hyperviolent nihilism. I appreciate the ruthlessness of the staging and editing, too: everyone simply wails on each other. That even a bit of redemption emerges in this excrement is masterful storytelling.

  2. Nick Schwab's rating of the film Yakuza Graveyard

    Fukasaku's rough style is too jerky and frantic, as if finding an annoying paradox between a modern and classic tone. The story, however, builds one's interest in its non-traditional fall from grace of its main character. Although this action choreography is often too shaky for clarity, the melodrama, charm, and humor gives it a cool vibe, akin to John Woo's later macho-reflection sentiments. Ending is tops, too.

    Entertaining gangster flick. Not the best I've seen, but certainly worth a view.
