The Japanese Outlaw Masters Series returns to the Egyptian and Aero Theatres in Los Angeles, September 9-16,
This year, the film series goes back to the basics — samurai, yakuza and action classics from the 1960’s and early 1970’s — including Hideo Gosha’s swordplay gems GOYOKIN and THE WOLVES; Kihachi Okamoto’s tongue-in-cheek masterpieces, KILL! and AGE OF ASSASSINS; Kinji Fukasaku’s
ferocious crime film WOLVES, PIGS AND PEOPLE; and last, but not least, Seijun Suzuki’s mind-altering BRANDED TO KILL. Plus, two impossibly rare and glorious chanbara treasures: Hideo Gosha’s THREE OUTLAW SAMURAI and Masahiro Shinoda’s ASSASSINATION, both long-unavailable in 35 mm. and
screening here for the first time in decades!
Screenings are at the Lloyd E. Rigler Theatre at the historic 1922 Egyptian (6712 Hollywood Boulevard between Highland and Las Palmas) in Hollywood and at the Max
Palevsky Theatre at the Aero Theatre (1328 Montana Ave) in Santa Monica.
