House of Bamboo. 1955. USA. Directed by Samuel Fuller. 102 min.
With Robert Ryan, Robert Stack, Shirley Yamaguchi. The arrival of color and CinemaScope added two new weapons to Fuller’s expressive arsenal, which he here trains on another vivid fable of race, identity, and violence, shot on location in Tokyo. Robert Ryan is the tightly wound criminal mastermind; Robert Stack is the outsider who infiltrates his military-style operation. 35mm.
