The Art of War Theater: Branded to Kill

blame it on JES7 March 2, 2013

Although today’s feature is not a martial arts film per se, it’s definitely a great watch. Branded to Kill is a 1967 yakuza flick and is said to have been “…Cited as an influence by filmmakers such as Jim Jarmusch, John Woo, Chan-wook Park and Quentin Tarantino.” I copped this one on Blu-Ray awhile back on Criterion (which is one of my favorite companies when it comes to classic films) and the conversion to HD is damn amazing! Enjoy another Japanese classic.
