Yakuza Style

In an online companion to the current Men's Vogue, Mark Schilling, author of the Yakuza Movie Book contributes some insightful thoughts in an essay on Seijun Suzuki's far-from-standard films. This is a special addition to David Samuels' story on infiltrating the yakuza (Japanese gangster) underworld in search of the "perfect three-button suit." Includes movie clips!
