A look at the life of renegade yakuza, Rikio Ishikawa, particularly the years from 1946 to 1950 when his violent antics get him in trouble with his own clan, Kawada, and then with the clan of his protector, Kozaburo Imai. In these years, he can rely on Chieko, a young Tokyo courtesan who gives him shelter. He's banished to Osaka, where he picks up a drug habit. Through it all, he keeps his friends and enemies off balance with unpredictable behavior - and he seems indestructible. (imdb)

Violent dramatized version of the life of Rikio Ishikawa, a prominent (and psychopathic) yakuza in Tokyo in the years following WWII. It's a fairly routine outing from Kinji Fukasaku, featuring his trademark hand held camera, frenetic action scenes and a typically intense performance from leading man Tetsuya Watari. Though it fails to rise to the level of their later collaboration Yakuza Graveyard, it does a great job of evoking the chaos and desperation of the post-war era in Japan.

Yakuza Gone Wild. It's well made, got style, but there's not much else to this.

The docudrama film style suites the movie but it also kept me disengaged. The frantic camera work really worked for the film. And man what a piece of shit Rikio Ishikawa was.

Compelling but not great. The frenzied camera, crooked angles, and manic action made it annoying to watch. Yeah, I get the point, the guy lives a crazy life. Also, that unnaturally bright red blood takes me right out of the experience.
