Hey everyone, I'll be showing the final film in Kinji Kukasaku's "Battles Without Honor or Humanity" series. Each film is complete onto itself, but watching all 5 films will give you the complete story. The Year: 1970. In the wake of a big police crackdown, Akira Takeda attempts to transform the Hiroshima yakuza families into a legitimate political organization: The Tensei Coalition. When the young Matsumura ascends to the charmanship of the coalition, the older, hardened yakuza led by Jo Shishido (Branded to Kill) seize one last opportunity to stir up chaos and bloodshed. Which side will series hero Shozo Hirono join, and what is to be his ultimate fate?
Feel free to bring a drink or a snack to share. We'll order some pizzas before the film. Hope to see you there!
