STRAY CAT ROCK: BEAT ‘71

Toshiya Fujita, Japan, 1971, Arrow Films, Crime - Japan

“There's a lot of loaded imagery in that final battle where Eastern Culture is literally doing battle with Western Culture -- in a Wild West Town no less!” -- Craig Duffy, Letterboxd

Starring LADY SNOWBLOOD’s Meiko Kaji and directed by genre veterans Yasuharu Hasebe (MASSACRE GUN, RETALIATION) and Toshiya Fujita (LADY SNOWBLOOD), the STRAY CAT ROCK series -- all made between 1970-71, a golden age of Japanese exploitation film -- features a psychedelic mix of girl gangs, bikers, sex, drugs, rock ‘n roll and plenty of ass-kicking.

This swansong to the series sees Kaji framed and sent to prison by her boyfriend's father. With the help of some hippies, she strives to be re-united.
