Yakuza that Help

March 16, 2011

I was a little late to pick this up but the Japan Society’s Hardest Men in Town: Yakuza Chronicles of Sin, Sex & Violence event is in its last 4 days. It’s a selection of old school Japanese gangster flicks from stylish directors as Miike, Suzuki, and Kitano.

On Thursday, A Yakuza in Love aka Villainous Love will screen at 7:30 pm

Friday – The world premiere of Ryuji at 7:30 pm

Saturday The U.S. premiere of Yakuza Wives at 5:00 pm and the NY premiere of Kitano’s Outrage: The Way of the Modern Yakuza

Also, 50% of all ticket sales will go to the Earthquake Relief Fund for Japan.  If you haven’t donated already and can’t make the screening, please donate to one of these reputable organizations or if you’re a texter, here are some places you can make donations.
