EVERYTHING GOES WRONG
SUBETE GA KURUTTERU
1960, Janus Films, 72 min, Japan, Dir: Seijun Suzuki

With its dynamic camerawork and deftly intercut storylines, this little-known gem from director Seijun Suzuki blends the energy of the pulpiest juvenile-delinquent flicks with the angst of REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE. Disillusioned by his mother, Jirô (Tamio Kawaji) takes to the streets with friends, their petty crimes gradually escalating to a devastating climax. Yoshiko Nezu is mesmerizing as the girl smitten with the wayward Jirô.
