    Confession: I have several Ozu films in my library that I've never watched. This is part of Criterion's 'Late Ozu' collection in their Eclipse line. Had an afternoon to myself, put this on, and was not disappointed. You can learn a lot about editing from watching Ozu films. I also have a great companion to his work written by David Bordwell that's big on analysis and insight. In short, I don't think you can go wrong with Ozu. You're always gonna walk away with something to think about.

    This was a helluva good time. Escapist crime fun. Tons of bullets flying, no cops anywhere, who cares. Good fun, with some emotional weight to boot.

    Somehow I made it 41 years without seeing this movie.
    I get it now.
    Classic, funny stuff.
