A.K.A. Lone Wolf Isazo

ひとり狼 (Hitori Okami)

1968, 83 min., 16mm, color, in Japanese with English subtitles. Directed by Kazuo Ikehiro. With Raizo Ichikawa, Isamu Nagato, Mayumi Ogawa.  Print courtesy of The Japan Foundation with permission from Kadokawa Pictures.

The epitome of the matatabi (samurai gambler) movie, Lone Wolf Isazo ranks as one of Raizo Ichikawa’s most spectacular performances. Employing flashbacks within flashbacks and a brooding romantic style poised somewhere between Budd Boetticher and early Sergio Leone, director Kazuo Ikehiro charts Isazo’s descent from chivalrous naïf to vengeance-obsessed cynical wanderer, giving a definitive chronicle of the loneliness of the long-distance wanderer.
