DOBERMAN COP
DOBERUMAN DEKA
1977, 90 min, Japan, Dir: Kinji Fukasaku

Based on the manga by Buronson and Shinji Hiramatsu, DOBERMAN COP is a one-of-a-kind cop movie featuring Sonny Chiba as tough-as-nails Joji Kano from Okinawa, who is investigating a savage murder in Tokyo’s nightlife scene. Settling between Fukasaku’s masterful “Battles Without Honor and Humanity” series, this is the yakuza genre elevated to art form, as Joji takes on all kinds of bikers, drug pushers and lowlifes - none of whom suspect that this seemingly naive man will never relinquish his bear-trap grip. With Fukasaku regulars filling out the secondary cast and Chiba at a charismatic peak, it’s a pure shot of adrenaline to the heart, delivered with the force of a chest kick.
