MAN WITH A SHOTGUN

Seijun Suzuki, Japan, 1961, Arrow Films, Action

“Samurai movies often operate similarly to westerns (part of why SEVEN SAMURAI and YOJIMBO were later remade Stateside), but rarely do you see an actual Japanese western.” -- Kyle Warner, City on Fire

Now available for the first time ever outside Japan, THE MAN WITH A SHOTGUN is a high point in the first five years of director Seijun Suzuki’s career within Nikkatsu’s “Borderless Action” series. Drawing inspiration from Hollywood and the French New Wave, Suzuki’s works for Nikkatsu blended East and West, movie-fuelled fantasies and gritty realities of life in postwar Japan.
