Loved Ones Screens Seijun Suzuki’s, Tokyo Drifter at The Harper Theater
Emerging from the fifties as a singular specialist in the low budget, exuberant, scalping crime film—a small-scale master of callous, deep fried cadence, gaudy action, and offbeat interludes—Suzuki transposes the dynamism of the sixties and wages a more action-for-art’s-sake exhibitionism in cinematic sensation, Tokyo Drifter. The film manifests epic restlessness with cognitive and endemic impulse, matched with corollary resolve, Suzuki delightfully shoulders any situation to a juncture.
Join Loved Ones @ Harper Theater June, 23 for a screening of Seijun Suzuki’s, Tokyo Drifter. This marks the inauguration of Loved Ones,Not Far From Here screening series touring across the city June-September 2019.
The theme for this program is "The Struggles of Individualism"
Doors Open at 4:00 pm
Screening starts at 4:15 pm
