An anthology of three ultra violent Yakuza films from director Teruo Ishii (Blind Woman’s Curse, Horrors of Malformed Men).

Also known as Yakuza’s Law: Lynching, this is tryptic of some of the most brutal methods of torture ever devised, spanning the Edo, Taisho and Showa eras of Japan.

Starting with a violent tale of samurai vengeance starring Bunta Sugawara (Battles Without Honour and Humanity) through to Yakuza gang warfare in 1960s Japan.

Brutal, bewildering and definitely not for the faint-hearted, Yakuza Law represents Japanese popular cinema at its most extreme… and most thrilling.
