Yakuza 1974

Suek recommended a movie to me a few days ago.

Suek, the movie you recommended is looking good so far. 23 minutes in…. then skipping ahead.

Sometime later, I finished it and here is what I thought. It is a great way to learn about philosophical differences between West and Japan in terms of how we view life and how they view life. What makes this movie special is that it uses English and Japanese (with english subtitles), so it was produced by someone who actually understood both sides. While it is primarily in English, it is about the Japanese. With the Americans being former occupation military police and administrators (you know, when MacArthur reigned as the American Shogun in Japan) who are in their 50s or 60s. This is definitely not a movie about teenagers with rebellion issues.
