BLACK TIGHT KILLERS

Yasuharu Hasebe, Japan, 1966, Radiance Films, Cult

After wooing stewardess Yoriko (Chieko Matsubara, TOKYO DRIFTER), war photographer Hondo (Akira Kobayashi, BATTLES WITHOUT HONOR AND HUMANITY) sees her kidnapped by a team of deadly female assassins who use vinyl records as weapons. Investigating her whereabouts, Hondo uncovers a conspiracy to steal a buried stash of WWII-era gold. Soon he must dodge go-go dancing ninjas and chewing-gum bullets to save Yoriko, whose family secret is tied to the hidden treasure. Every bit as stylish and inventive as the wildest works by his mentor Seijun Suzuki, Yasuharu Hasebe’s BLACK TIGHT KILLERS is a gaudy but irresistible 1960s pop delight that ranks with the likes of Joseph Losey’s MODESTY BLAISE and Mario Bava’s DANGER: DIABOLIK!
