Japan On Fire 22: Sabu – Kanikosen

jof22

The wildman and acclaimed maker of chase movies with some very surreal and absurd humour continues his more thoughtful and humanistic streak as firmly explored in the dark Dead Run covered last episode and for this one, Kenny B and VCinema’s Coffin Jon will review Kanikosen. Featuring Sabu depicting a mutiny aboard a crab fishing ship, it’s a story that goes back decades and has a streak of real life darkness attached to it as well.

Running Times:
00ms 00s – Intro/ Kanikosen novel and author background
17m 58s – Kanikosen review
