Favorite Foreign Films: Tattooed Life (1965)

Film: Tattooed Life
Country: Japan
Director: Seijun Suzuki

After being double crossed by his yakuza boss, Tetsu flees with his younger brother, Kenji, attempting to reach Manchuria. Unable to book boat passage, they find work at a local mine, hiding both from the authorities and yakuza searching for them. The final twenty minutes of this film are amazingly stylish and brilliantly framed. I want to watch it again right now!
