Saturday, January 26, 6:45 PM
Kenji Misumi returns to direct the fifth Lone Wolf film, but long-time producer Shintaro Katsu (Zatoichi) leaves the responsibility to his brother and series star Tomisaburo Wakayama. In this next chapter, five disguised messengers test Ogami’s skills in a series of surprise attacks, gradually revealing the information he needs for his next assignment: to kill a revered Buddhist priest. Replete with Buddhist philosophy, this penultimate film taps into the spiritual aspect of Ogami’s journey for revenge.
1973, 89 min., DCP, color, in Japanese with English subtitles. Directed by Kenji Misumi. With Tomisaburo Wakayama, Akihiro Tomikawa, Michiyo Yasuda, Shingo Yamashiro.
