Janne the Director’s Favorite Rare Movies Top 100 List #94: Youth of the Beast (1963)

Polanski’s Chinatown if it was more badass. And located in Japan.

Director Seijun Suzuki loves to steal from American Film Noir movies (especially the screeching sound tires makes during car chases). But that’s okay, he later directed Branded To Kill and Jim Jarmusch stole scenes from that to his Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai.

So Japan and America are cool for now.
