New Trailer For Katsuhito Ishii's SMUGGLER!
If you had any concerns about what would happen to Katsuhito Ishii once he entered the studio system and made a film they should be quelled once you've had a look at the full trailer. The director of such cult faves as Funky Forest and The Taste of Tea doesn't appear to have missed his stride at all now that we have more footage to see. There are still those flourishes of style and nuances that have made him a favorite round these parts and we are very eager to see this next film of his. Making us wait three years for a new film is a terrible thing to do to your fans Katsuhito-san.
After his acting career fails, Kinuta is left drifting and disconnected. When a confrontation in an arcade turns bad, he ends up in debt. To earn the money, he takes a job with Jo, cleaning up murder scenes. To his surprise, he makes friends with Jo, but the cruelty of the underworld in which they work shocks him--and inevitably challenges him to find the strength to take a different path.
