Hunter in the Dark
(Yami no karyudo)

by Hideo GOSHA

Visuel 2020 Hunter in the Dark

Yataro Tanigawa, a one-eyed hired assassin, impresses yakuza boss Gomyo Kiyoemon with his  skilfulness. Gomyo hires Tanigawa as his bodyguard to protect him in the conflicts with enemy clans. Tanigawa’s influence rapidly grows…

In Hunter in the Dark, there is an irresistible flavour and, at each instant, a graphic sense of composition, down to the fight scenes. This gives the film its radical and free tone: a night in which a chambara film crosses swords with a yakuza film. JB
