  1. Thanks. I completely missed that video clip.

    Four Days of Snow and Blood I need to get (it’s one of the few Gosha films I don’t own). I’m also a little bit interested in the other two films. Toru Murakawa directed one of my favourite crime films of all time – Resurrection of the Golden Wolf.

  2. Very Nice ! three shock movies from three great directors ! I would like Shochiku publishes in dvd this films : The Toshiya Fujita’s The Miracle of Joe Petrel, Toru Murakawa’s No More God, No More Love (released in France under the title “Le Sang du Dragon”), Seïjun Suzuki’s Capone cries a Lot and Masato Harada’s The Heartbreak Yakuza.

  3. I don’t know exactly when it will be released. Just that last year Cinema Epoch announced they have licensed The Heartbreak Yakuza, Yellow Fangs (which was released just recently), A Tale of Sorrow and Sadness and Bad Girl Mako.
