Branded to Kill ★★★★★

Branded to Kill is a weird one. I had never heard of it and have never watched really and yakuza films but I was so enthralled and invested by the story around the film that I needed to watch it.

It is definitely not a movie for everyone. It has a lot of strange and absurd qualities, things that are obviously satirical to other spy/noir genres yet played completely seriously, and overall is just a very surreal experience. However I loved the film on my first watch. And I really look forward to watching it again.
