Pure, concentrated awesome

Roughneck
1969, 86 min., 35mm, color. Directed by Yasuharu Hasebe.

In director Hasebe’s yakuza film, Kobayashi plays Yuji, a hoodlum who becomes involved with an ototobun (younger gang brother) trying to go straight. Yuji soon takes up with a hot springs geisha, the lover of a local boss, whose gang is facing stiff competition from an outside rival.

But besides all that, there’s the samurai sword and dynamite fight in the abandoned quarry.
