Agitator (Japan) (2002)


agitator

A tale of greed, honour and revenge amongst the yakuza, Agitator concerns an executive from the Tenseikai Syndicate attempting to gain power by arranging for two smaller rival gangs – the Shirane and Yokomizo – to unite under his name. A complex story involving the machinations of the older yakuza executives in their quest for power, the film mainly focuses on Kenzaki Kunihiko, the charismatic leader of a gang that makes up one part of the Yokomizo family. As he deals with the fallout from the executives’ plans of assassinations and betrayals, could he show that the younger punks of the yakuza have more honour and loyalty than the older men whom they follow?

Sympathy for Lady Vengeance (2005) (korean)

sympathy_for_lady_vengeance_2005_korean_movies_poster.jpg
Acclaimed filmmaker Park Chan Wook returns to the director’s chair to helm Sympathy for Lady Vengeance, one of the most highly anticipated Korean films of 2005. The film marks the end of Park’s hugely popular Vengeance Trilogy”, a series of films that began with 2002’s Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance and continued with 2003’s internationally successful Old Boy. Unlike most trilogies, this trio of pictures is united not by plot or by characters, but by its thematic content, namely, revenge and its terrible consequences.
Actress Lee Young Ae (Joint Security Area, Jewel in the Palace) takes up the leading role in Sympathy for Lady Vengeance, portraying Geum Ja, a beautiful woman just released from jail after thirteen years of imprisonment. Her crime? The kidnapping and brutal murder of a young child. Through the use of flashbacks, it is revealed that Geum Ja was extremely kind and generous to the other prisoners during her internment, earning a widespread reputation as a veritable saint among the imprisoned women. However, Geum Ja’s polite behavior masks her true intentions, for it seems she is totally innocent of the charges brought against her and is covertly hatching an elaborate plan to seek retribution on the twisted Mr. Baek, an English teacher played by Old Boy’s Choi Min Sik who is responsible for her unjust conviction. And as soon as Geum Ja is released from prison, her demeanor changes. Once kind and considerate, she becomes cold and calculating. Enlisting the help of a retired cop (Nam Il Woo) and her daughter Jenny (who was adopted by an Australian couple during the anti-heroine’s incarceration), Geum Ja sets in motion her plan for bitter vengeance, but will she succeed? Find out in Sympathy for Lady Vengeance, a film that may just prove why revenge is a dish best served cold!

Horrors of Malformed Men (Japan) (1969)

malformed

Banned for decades in Japan!

Not knowing if he’s sane or deranged, medical student Hirosuke Hitome (Teruo Yoshida) escapes from an asylum and tries to piece together his past. Wanted for a murder he didn’t commit, Hirosuke makes his way to the coast, where he finds that he is virtually identical (right down to the swastikas carved into the soles) to a man named Genzaburo Komoda, who has just been buried. They may be brothers. Hirosuke takes the corpse’s place and fakes a miraculous return from the dead. Both Genzaburo’s widow and mistress pursue Hirosuke for sex, and threatening letters appear. More murders occur until Hirosuke takes a boat to the mysterious island where his reclusive, deformed father Jogoro (Tatsumi Hijikata) is said to be preparing some kind of ‘earthly paradise.’ Hirosuke instead finds that his father is a madman ruling scores of captive women and freakish deformities. Hirosuke’s mother is a prisoner chained in a cave. Jogoro expects his son to help him transform his ‘normal’ prisoners into more monstrosities — through atrocious surgery!

Many more airlines like midwest airlines and kingfisher airlines simply prescribe what the stats of successful flight they have had. Some time it cause problem with cheap airline tickets but that is the right of every passenger to know about where he in onboard
