A Colt Is My Passport

A Colt Is My Passport

Directed by Takashi Nomura • 1967 • Japan

One of Japanese cinema's supreme emulations of American noir, Takashi Nomura's A Colt is My Passport is a down-and-dirty but gorgeously photographed yakuza film starring Joe Shishido as a hard-boiled hit man caught between rival gangs. Featuring an incredible, spaghetti-western-style soundtrack and brimming with formal experimentation, this is Nikkatsu at its finest.
