THE YAKUZA (1975) NEW 2017 1080p HD REMASTER 

Original Poster
Sydney Pollack’s ground-breaking cinema blend arrives on 1080p HD with all honor restored. It's Seventies stylings, from color palette to scenic design to subtle dramatics and sudden shocking violence, are all on display as never before. Robert Mitchum, in his fourth decade as a true movie icon, continues to create defining roles while movie conventions evolved around him.


In this heady blend of neo-noir, East-meets-West, Japanese B-crime film, post-Pekinpah shoot-em-up, and arthouse meditation on middle-age regret, Mitchum plays Harry Kilmer, an ex-GI burdened with a two-way giri from his days as a Military Policeman during the occupation of Japan.

New Blu-ray
When his old army buddy ends up in a fix with a Yakuza clan, Harry returns to Japan to call in that obligation. An obligation held by merciless, ex-Yakuza Kendo master Tanaka Ken. Featuring Brian Keith, Herb Edelman, Richard Jordan, Keiko Kishi and James Shigeta. Screenplay by Paul Schrader and Robert Towne.  


SPECIAL FEATURES: Commentary by Director Sydney Pollack; Featurette - Promises to Keep (HD); Theatrical Trailer (HD) 16x9 Widescreen
