  1. I have the pleasure and honor of kicking-off the revived film club. Given my personal enthusiasm for the film, and the interest expressed by many would-be film club participants, my selection for June 2016 will be Seijun Suzuki's Tokyo Drifter. You've (probably) never seen anything quite like it, though you'll probably all recognize that Tarantino took a page or two from Tokyo Drifter's book for Kill Bill. In Tokyo Drifter, Suzuki warps a standard-fare yakuza flick into a surreal, pop-art explosion. Suzuki's experimentation would later derail his career (in 1967's Branded to Kill, Suzuki abandoned conventional notions of narrative and established film grammar altogether, and the resulting uproar knocked him out of filmmaking for a decade). Manohla Darghis wrote a brief piece on Suzuki for Tokyo Drifter's Criterion release, and it's worth a look (there are no real spoilers for the film there). Tokyo Drifter is available on Hulu+ and for rent via Amazon Prime, so those are two easy ways to view the film. We'll commence "official" conversation on the film beginning at the start of June. I look forward to discussing Tokyo Drifter with you all!
