Another Lonely Hitman (Widescreen) (Region 1) - Mochizuki, Rokuro
Releasedatum: 31 mei 2005
Director Rokuro Mochizuki delivers a stark depiction of violence, drugs and prostitution from the novel by crime and manga writer, Yukio Yamanouchi. After serving ten years in prison for a coke-fuelled assassination of a rival gang’s boss, yakuza hitman Tachibana (Ryo Ishibashi) finds the world has inevitably changed. The strict yakuza code that he lived his life by no longer exists, and his once-respected gang has become a shadow of its former self. Tachibana struggles to repress his disapproval of the new order, but it is only so long before a breaking point is reached and his unwavering principles begin to overwhelm him.
Exclusive 26-minute interview with the director. Audio commentary. Cast and director biographies.
