SATAN’S TOWN
AKUMA NO MACHI
1956, Nikkatsu, 79 min, Japan, Dir: Seijun Suzuki

Director Seijun Suzuki's third film (and his first to feature gangsters as protagonists) focuses on a boss and his henchman after they escape from prison. Suzuki shows his promise through cleverly constructed editing and bold compositions, particularly in the film's murder scenes (of which there are many). Text courtesy of Doc Films.
