This is one zany and trippy crime film that feels like Seijun Suzuki cross fading on acid and cocaine. With vibrant colors and unique camera angles, Fukasaku makes this a beautiful gem that is intense and funny. Also Akihira Miwa is a extraordinary presence.
Fukasaku directs Rampo's story like a fever dream full of noirish touches. Full of poetic dialogues, and very inspired performance by the "black lizard" this is the stuff cult movie legends are made of. In desperate need of a proper home video release.
