Directed by Sydney Pollack
Starring Robert Mitchum, Ken Takakura, Brian Keith, Herb Edelman, Richard Jordan

A lotta folks are gonna be happy about this one. Warner Archive has Sydney Pollack’s The Yakuza (1974) on the way on Blu-Ray — in time for Valentine’s Day. It’s a great look at Japanese culture, with a typically terrific performance from Robert Mitchum and some incredible action sequences. This is one of those movies I heard a whole lot about before I finally caught up with it — and it actually lived up to all the hype.
