CULT FACTION

For all your cult film, tv, cartoon, comic and video game needs

Crazy Thunder Road is coming to Bluray!

The first video release (in any format) outside of Japan of Sogo Ishii’s punk classic, featuring a new restoration supervised by the director alongside many new and exclusive extras!

Hailed both as Japan’s Mad Max, Sogo Ishii’s high-octane, loud-and-proud breakthrough hit was one of that country’s great success stories, a graduation project from a film school punk rocker bought by Toei Studios and released nationwide.

The plot involves Ken, a gang leader dreaming of a quiet life with his girlfriend Noriko, and Jin, Ken’s maverick successor, who isn’t about to let yakuza kingpins or right-wing nutjobs tell him what to do or whom to kill. Jin’s violent individualism in a world where even outlaws follow the bosses’ orders references the doomed anti-establishment heroes of Kinji Fukasaku, but Crazy Thunder Road points toward a new style of genre filmmaking-fast-paced, quick-witted and brilliantly stylized.
