SENSELESS VIOLENCE VIVIDLY PORTRAYED!


One last video clip for January.

Here’s the delirious trailer for Seijun Suzuki’s Youth of the Beast (1963, now available in a new transfer from Criterion).

The trailer, in addition to being damned near irresistible (“Leave those worms to me! Gangland justice is my job!”), comes courtesy of my friend Haruka, who translated and timed the spiffy new subtitles for the preview and the DVD.

Enjoy!

Great choice, Dennis.

Youth of the Beast is one of my favorite Suzuki films. I especially like the scene in the night club.

Youth os the Beast is my favorite Suzuki film! It's brilliant from it's dazzeling begining to it's touching end.
