HOUSE OF BAMBOO (1955) (BLU-RAY)
Starring:  Brad Dexter, Robert Ryan, Robert Stack, Sessue Hayakawa, Shirley Yamaguchi, Cameron Mitchell
Directed By:  Samuel Fuller
Composed By:  Leigh Harline

“A lean, hard-boiled, sharp detective thriller…the plotting and writing are clever and sufficiently skillful to keep things always on the move…the excitement is greatly complemented by the vivid background of Tokyo.” – Bosley Crowther, The New York Times

“House of Bamboo has some of the most stunning examples of widescreen photography in the history of cinema…melds the heady insanity of a Douglas Sirk melodrama with the philosophical inquiry of the best noirs.” – Keith Uhlich, Slant Magazine

Writer-director Samuel Fuller’s House of Bamboo (1955) is a gangster-noir for the post-war world: hard, fast, and out of control. Shot entirely on location in Tokyo and Yokohama by the brilliant cinematographer Joe MacDonald, it gives us a look at a brutally exploitative Japanese-based American gang led by a compelling sadist (the one and only Robert Ryan). Caught up and over his head is the relatively innocent Eddie (Robert Stack), whose burgeoning love for a “kimono girl” (the lovely Shirley Yamaguchi) is counterpointed by his involvement with the complicated crime boss. Also featuring sterling performances from Cameron Mitchell and Sessue Hayakawa.

Just a comment on the two new Blu-ray releases BROKEN LANCE and HOUSE OF BAMBOO. The former title is a western remake of Foxes "House Of Strangers" (1947) and the latter title is a loose remake of Foxes earlier "Street With No Name".
