An infernal duel between two hit men bent on annihilating each other. Delirious destruction and an ecstatically twisted storyline for an inimi- table high art/low art mashup.This time, the bent humour of Suzuki’s off-the-wall cinema was too much: the studio brass forced him to work in black and white.
