RIP Seijun Suzuki

From Nikkatsu english facebook page:

"Former Nikkatsu film director, Seijun Suzuki, has passed away at 7:32 pm on February 13, 2017, after battling chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
He was 93.
Seijun Suzuki made his directorial debut with "Harbor Toast: Victory Is In Our Grasp" in 1956 and since then he continued to influence fans and filmmakers all around the world with films such as "Tokyo Drifter", "Branded to Kill" and "Zigeunerweisn".
His final work was "Princess Raccoon", which was released in 2005.
We hereby express our deepest condolence and our profound gratitude and respect for his lifelong work."


No matter how much brilliant (and popular) his 60's films are, my favourite film of his remains "A Tale of Sorrow and Sadness" (悲愁物語, Hishū monogatari)"- 1977
