A sharpshooter kills two prisoners in a police van at night. The guard on the van is suspended for six months; he's Tamon, an upright, modest man. He begins his own investigation into the murders. Who were the victims, who are their relatives and girlfriends, who else was on the van that night? As he doggedly investigates, others die, coincidences occur, and several leads take him to the Hamaju Agency, which may be supplying call girls. Its owner is in jail, his daughter, the enigmatic Yuko, keeps turning up where Tamon goes. Tamon believes he can awaken good in people, but has he met his match? Will he solve the murders or be the next victim? And who is Akiba?

This is very factual (well in Castro's eyes) and rather talky, If you are interested in cold war, early 60's then it's interesting to hear his side...

But the script! Ah, my eyes! The script! I suppose that it might amuse middle-aged women, and very young, very stupid children. But pur-lease! It's aboutAsFunnyAsADeadPig. Avoid!

Mike M (nl) wrote: Pretentious isn't really the word for this epic face-off between ancient Greek myth and swinging London reality, but that doesn't mean it isn't at least halfway interesting for much of its duration... The revelation is the otherwise unknown Gothard: part Malcolm McDowell, part Robin Askwith, he's a very 60s moptop who's especially convincing in those scenes where he has to lay down and defend his reasons for self-sacrifice - while also conveying the kind of stunted growth and self-regard that perhaps brought about the ultimate failure of the whole counter-cultural movement. Needlessly extended and yet weirdly relevant in its dispatches on advertising, suicide and the fame game, it's within touching distance of what a British Godard movie might have been like.
Jim H (gb) wrote: Capsule review of Air Force (1943) directed by Howard Hawks. One of the great movies of it's time. A B-17 bomber and it's crew are en route to Pearl Harbor on Dec 7, 1941 and arrive just after the attack. The men become some of the first to fight in WW II when they refuel and then take off to pursue and fight the Japanese along with the few planes that have not been destroyed or were nearby by like they were. The characters are less stereotypes than the archetypes for dozens of movies that would come later: the incredibly resourceful mechanic (think Star Trek's Scotty), well-played by Harry Carey; the committed and decisive Captain; and John Garfield as (of course) the prototypical "Guy From Brooklyn." The comraderie and strong bonds between friends (usually men, as seen here) that was a signature of Howard Hawks' films is very evident here and creates some poignant moments. The war is not very romanticized -- it's shown as brutal and unforgiving. Some men are wounded and not everyone lives. Hawks also used a visual style that is filled with dramatic camera angles, shadowy grimness, and evocative and exciting montages, which showed that he could compete with stylists like Hitchcock and Fritz Lang if he needed to, even though it was usually not his habit to do so. Finally, Air Force has an odd and complex blend of patriotism and anti-war elements that separate it and elevate it above most of the films of this era. The film is suffused with determination and grief as the crew presses on further and further west, with more and more men getting killed and wounded, their bomber taking more and more damage, and no end in sight for these weary but intrepid soldiers.
