Even though the story is fluttering and I do not know what the degree of scenario perfection is, I can not stop focusing. It's a really great movie. Probably, the real yakuza struggle will be confused like this and kill each other without knowing what is happening.
In terms of images, the color comes up having the density and taste from a large format film. Tarantino, who uses film for filming, confessed to the influence of this film. That is understandable. There are many characters, and introduce them so briefly, and the relationships are complicated and important. So those with poor memory persons will not be able to taste the whole movie. You should look twice. Anyway, if it gets caught between the group trying to take the territory and the group that is likely to be taken over, it means almost he has dead. Death approaches with just one answer. Yakuza must has excellent head. The chaotic situation of the yakuza world, complex relationships, and the battle that starts without thinking ... this is a very powerful movie that makes such a reality come to life.
