So happy to finally see this. Goofy crime action adventure with Akira Takarada as the lead. I love that and having Mie Hama as his lovely sidekick. It’s loosey goosey but really fun watching the cat & mouse game w/all these characters. Almost plays like a cartoon or even a Lupin the 3rd anime where things don’t quite add up but it doesn’t matter because it’s a short cut to the action/story. Like when Yumi (Mie Hama) sees Andy (Takarada) being put in the trunk as she’s taking a shower then cut to next scene where the car arrives at an airfield and Yumi is right behind them. Like how did she get dressed and out the door fast enough to follow the car that had already left when she was still in the shower? IT DOESNT MATTER
Now I wish DKU had programmed Golden Eye, the sequel to this so I could watch it. If these are still owned by Janus / Criterion in the US I wish they would release them to home video.
