Battles Without Honor and Humanity All-Nighter

Doing for yakuza what The Godfather did for the Mob, Kinji Fukasaku's Battles Without Honor and Humanity series is recognised as one of the classics of Japanese genre cinema. Ikebukuro's Shin-Bungeiza is screening all five of the original films in a marathon late-night session on Saturday, kicking off with a discussion between Sonny Chiba (who appeared in the second installment, Hiroshima Deathmatch) and yakuza movie expert Jtaro Sugisaku. Be warned that the screenings aren't subtitled, and you'll probably need an advanced degree in Chugoku-region yakuza dialect to get the most out of them.
