CJS Movie Night; DEADLY OUTLAW REKKA 実録・安藤昇侠道伝 烈火

As part of The Canada Japan Society’s movie nights at the National Film Board, the CJS is proud to present Takashi Miike’s 2002 yakuza (gangster) epic “Deadly Outlaw Rekka”.

Starring Riki Takeuchi, Renji Ishibashi, Sonny Chiba, and Tetsuro Tanba, this is an electrifying movie that provides laughs, excitement, and some really crazy action. It has all the trademarks of a classic yakuza film; betrayal, revenge, honor and love set in the heart of modern day Shinjuku to a pounding rock score from the Japanese psychedelic rock group “Flower Travellin’ Band”.

Whether you’re a fan of action movies, the yakuza genre, or Miike as a director, don’t miss this little known gem from a prolific director.
