FIGHTING DELINQUENTS
KUTABARE GURENTAI
1960, Nikkatsu, 80 min, Japan, Dir: Seijun Suzuki

This is Suzuki's first film starring teen idol Wada Kōji. Kōji plays a young construction worker whose wacky antics annoy the stiff-necked adults of his town until he takes on a crooked real-estate developer and saves the community. It’s also Suzuki's first color film, and he paints the town red, as it were. Text courtesy of Doc Films.
