Not to worry, master avant garde Nikkatsu action director Suzuki Seijun made Branded to Kill just to fill that bottomless void left in your being all these years. We're talking about a movie that is so progressive and radical in its storytelling and film making that it famously got Suzuki fired from his contract directing position at the Nikkatsu Company in 1967.
Decades later, Suzuki laughed last, and over sixty films and one Japanese Best Picture Award later he's been immortalized as one of Japan's greatest cinematic treasures.
But enough about the man, your here for the music and today's installment is a doosey. I present to you the complete never released soundtrack to Branded to Kill, frankensteined together by yours truely from the very movie itself. While this does leave the occasional line of dialoge or gun shot in, I believe it only adds to the fun. Enjoy.
