BEYOND FEST! SONNY CHIBA LIVE!
DOBERMAN COP (DOBERUMAN DEKA), 1977, AGFA, 90 min. Dir. Kinji Fukasaku. Based on the manga by Buronson and Shinji Hiramatsu, DOBERMAN COP is a one-of-a-kind cop movie featuring Sonny Chiba as tough-as-nails Joji Kano from Okinawa, who is investigating a savage murder in Tokyos nightlife scene. Settling between Fukasakus masterful Battles Without Honor and Humanity series, this is the yakuza genre elevated to art form, as Joji takes on all kinds of bikers, drug pushers and lowlifes - none of whom suspect that this seemingly naïve man will never relinquish his bear-trap grip. With Fukasaku regulars filling out the secondary cast and Chiba at a charismatic peak, its a pure shot of adrenaline to the heart, delivered with the force of a chest kick.
In Japanese with English subtitles.
Discussion following with actor Sonny Chiba, who will sign merchandise in the lobby at 2:00 PM.
