殺しの烙印 Branded to Kill (1967)

I first watched this in 2008. It was the first Suzuki film I'd seen, and was the seed for this year's Artist of the Year selection. It's hard for me to neutrally assess this, since it clearly left an impact on me then. It was nice seeing so many motifs from earlier films reappear here, even if I'm more impressed with their utilization in the earlier films. It's remarkable how otherwise stylistically distinct it is from his other Nikkatsu work.

After watching Suzuki's "Flesh Trilogy", I decided to continue with another film starring Yumiko Nogawa. This doesn't quite live up those films.
