Carefully controlled but with a manic energy and breakneck pace, this early Imamura drama is set among the postwar criminal underworld in the port town of Yokosuka. A power struggle between small-time gangsters drives the action, but myriad human stories seeth beneath the surface.
dir Shohei Imamura, Japan 1961, 77 mins, subtitles, 35mm
