Product Description

After serving ten years for killing a rival gang’s boss, Tachibana is expected to pick up where he left off in his career as hitman for the Hirakawa Syndicate.

When he is given Yuki, a prostitute, as a ‘welcome back’ present, Tachibana finds himself drawn into looking after her, rescuing her both from a serious drug habit and a brutal pimp. When the pimp, whom he has beaten up, turns out to be a member of the larger Hokushin gang, it proves to have dire consequences for both Tachibana and Yuki.

Director Mochizuki shows his class in placing human relationships at the very heart of this gangster film without giving up one iota of tense action.

Review

"...shocking, ultraviolent and magnificently unpredictable tour de force... one of the best additions to the yakuza-eiga genre ever made." -- http://www.mandiapple.co.uk/snowblood/anotherlonelyhitman.htm

"Another Lonely Hitman is late 90's Japanese noir cool... a thought-provoking sense of this dirty underworld." -- http://www.filmmonthly.com/Video/Articles/AnotherLonelyHitman/AnotherLonelyHitman.html

"This film has a depth that makes it stand out amongst its peers, and that's a very rare thing indeed." -- http://www.roguecinema.com/article255.html

"Top-notch Nipponese noir... one of the most successful attempts yet to revive the yakuza genre for hip, postmodern auds" -- http://www.variety.com/index.asp?layout=upsell_review&reviewID=VE1117910476&cs=1

"enthralling and dramatic film with some very stylish visuals that pull you into the melodrama" -- http://www.dvdmaniacs.net/

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Moody yakuza movie with an emphasis on emotions and mood, not violence (though there's enough to keep you satisfied). The prostitute girlfriend reminded me of the woman in the french film Betty Blue; the music even sounded a bit french in parts and though Japanese has a french 1980s style, so I suspect that had some influence on the director.
