A veritable bible for fans and newcomers alike, Outlaw Masters of Japanese Film offers an extraordinary close-up of the hitherto overlooked golden age of Japanese cult cinema from the 1950s through the 1970s. Having unique access to top maverick filmmakers and Japanese genre film icons, Chris Desjardins brings together interviews with, and original writings on, such transgressive directors as Seijun Suzuki (Branded to Kill) and Koji Wakamatsu (Ecstasy of the Angels), as well as performers like Shinichi ""Sonny"" Chiba (The Streetfighter, Kill Bill Vol. 1) and Meiko Kaji (Lady Snowblood). Desjardins brings us up to date with an overview of such Japanese ""enfants terribles"" as Takashi Miike (Audition) and Kiyoshi Kurasawa (Cure). Illustrated with fantastic stills and posters from some of Japan's finest cult and action films, the book also provides detailed extras including filmographies and related bibliographies.

About the Author:

Chris Desjardins, known in film circles as ""Chris D."", is author of the forthcoming Gun and Sword: Yakuza Eiga--An Encyclopedia of Japanese Gangster Films 1956-1980. He is a programmer at the American Cinematheque in Los Angeles and his first feature film as director, I Pass for Human, has recently had limited festival release in the US. He is also leader of the rock bands The Flesh Eaters and Divine Horsemen.

Review:

""Legends have a basis in both a perceived 'virtual' reality and in a 'true life' reality. Chris D.'s book shows both sides, which is essential in understanding how filmmaking legends are born.""--Takashi Miike, Director of Ichi, Dead or Alive and Audition
