Yakuza Film Genre
One of the favorite film genres of the public has to be Crime and some of the best of them come from Japan and revolve around the Yakuza. With the release of a High Definition transfer of Kinji Fukasaku’s Battles Without Honor and Humanity and its sequels in the near future, it would be interesting to see an article that examines these films that started the genre and where it is now or write about contemporaries and favorites of the genre. Another director to look at is Takeshi Kitano who created some of the best in the genre with Sonatine, Outrage, and Beyond Outrage.
