OUTLAW: GORO THE ASSASSIN

Keiichi Ozawa, Japan, 1968, Arrow Films

In 1968, acclaimed director Toshio Masuda (RUSTY KNIFE, TORA! TORA! TORA!) and rising star Tetsuya Watari (TOKYO DRIFTER) teamed up for OUTLAW: GANGSTER VIP, a gritty yakuza yarn based on the writings of real life ex-gangster Goro Fujita. The resulting six-film series offers up a depiction of the Japanese underworld unprecedented in its sympathetic portrayal of a man haunted by his past, unable to escape a life of crime.

On a cold winter day, Goro and Masahiko murder a mob boss -- the deed hands them prison time, but Goro has noregrets. When Goro’s released two years later, Masahiko is dying in a prison hospital and entrusts his last wish: "Find my sister and take care of her." Goro leaves as a free man with a mission, but soon finds that he might have been better off in jail.
