(gb) wrote: Seijun Suzuki's "Tokyo Drifter" is a very silly but important B-Movie. It encompasses the 1960s Japanese New Wave into one film. It's visual and auditory mischief can certainly be amusing (and often copied, most notably by Quentin Tarantino with "Kill Bill: Volume 1") but it also adds up to next to nothing. It's hard to fully embrace a film that makes so little sense. There is nothing to plug into emotionally or narratively. The film may be fun and it's use of color is dazzling, but without any human anchor (which Tarantino certainly added to his pictures) we are left will all style and very little substance.

(kr) wrote: Worth watching one time or more, depending on how much you like the Duke, this Wayne produced film is one of many made by Wayne when he was riding high in Westerns. Loosely based on events and characters from the Lincoln County War of 1878 in New Mexico Territory, which involved Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid among others. While not the most memorable of films, the editing got a little rough at times for me. Wayne is the MAN, a wealthy cattle rancher and that's about most of the film. Forrest Tucker is the problem for Wayne in this one as they fight, literally one on one as Tucker buys up the town. A good trip down 60-70's western nostalgia filming technique, it was no Stagecoach or rival to great cinema. Maybe it wasn't trying to be. Michael A. Wayne, executive producer felt the story summed up his father's political views. The sizeable cast has familiar faces from earlier John Wayne films, as well as friends such as Forrest Tucker. * Two sons of Robert Mitchum are in the cast. ** In 1986, Chisum's composer Frontiere was in jail for nine months in a federal penitentiary for scalping tickets to the 1980 Super Bowl, which he obtained through his then-wife, Los Angeles Rams owner Georgia Frontiere. They divorced after his release from prison. *** Chisum's cinematographer Clothier was nominated for two Academy Awards for Best Cinematography for The Alamo (1960) and Cheyenne Autumn (1964). **** John Wayne was making Chisum when he heard of his nomination for an Academy Award in 1970 for True Grit.
