Naked Bullet
Otoko goroshi onna goroshi: hadaka no zyudan (original title)
Director: Kji Wakamatsu
Cast: Yichi Minato, Ken Yoshizawa

A film noir pink film, or a pink film noir? Koji Wakamatsu's revenge tale brings the two genres together, pumping new life into them both. Naked Bullet portrays young yakuza Sho who, with his lover, plans to escape his life, but instead, the two are tricked into coming back to the gang, and are horribly punished for their transgression. Five years later, and missing a pinkie, Sho decides to get revenge, and embarks upon a theft of a rival gang, a plan that ends up like no one expected.

The film ricochets from moody black and white photography, to a nightmarish color torture sequence, and back again. The jazzy score and cool-as-ice antihero are reminiscent of French crime films, and Wakamatsu introduces a tough femme fatale to rival the best of them. Revenge is slow and unsteady in Wakamatsu's world, and Naked Bullet is a story of double- and triple-crosses, with every character's allegiance unsure. With enough skin to satisfy pinku fans, but intelligent and with enough intrigue to rise above the genre's conventions, Naked Bullet is an under seen gem by the prolific director.
