Blood-Red Water in the Channel
(Seijun Suzuki, 1961) · Wada Kōji stars as an officer of the Coast Guard in a quaint seaside town who normally has nothing more to do than help ferry passengers and deal with the odd drunken sailor. Soon, however, he finds himself taking on a gang of smugglers and learning that one of the ringleaders is closer to home than he had realized. Blood-Red Water was shot on location and boasts some exciting action and adventure sequences on land and at sea. Print courtesy of the Japan Foundation Film Library.
