A delirious roman porno re-imagining of Seijun Suzuki’s ‘Branded to Kill’. Directed by Atsushi Yamatoya and scripted by Yôzô Tanaka, both ‘Branded to Kill’s’ screenwriters and Suzuki’s regular collaborators.
Branded to Kill (1967) was a left-field, highly stylized and very strange crime film about a yakuza hit-man who messes up an assassination and so becomes the next target of his bosses. It was a film which met with bafflement and indifference at the time of its release. Trapped in Lust came out a few years later and is a re-imagining of this film in the style known as Roman Porno, which was essentially a Japanese pink film which was strongly aimed at a sexploitation market. To that end, we have the bare bones of the Branded to Kill story repeated but with lashings of softcore sex.
