|OKINAWA YAKUZA WAR (1976) - REMASTERED
Okinawa Yakuza senso - What's this? A 70's ultra-violent Japanese Yakuza
pic that opens with an over the top Sonny Chiba karate smack-down? Cinema
nirvana achieved? Well not quite, but damn close...
Set in 1971,
the year before the reversion of Okinawa to Japan. Two plots mingle,
one featuring a conflict between local and mainland yakuza gangs, and
the other an internal struggle within the Okinawa gang itself. Made with
a documentary touch, this film also offers a fascinating glimpse of
Japan’s gaze on America formed through the filter of Okinawa.
film was initially banned in Okinawa because it was feared it would
incite too much interest in the local yakuza or reignite the too
recently historical blood feud which the film exploits.
