The Yakuza Papers 3: Proxy War Details


[[Performer~P90730~Kinji Fukasaku~kinjifukasaku]]'s violent chronicle of mob warfare in post-war Hiroshima continues with this, the third film in the Yakuza Papers series. Shozo Hirono ([[Performer~P68948~Bunta Sugawara~buntasugawara]]) struggles to remain independent and neutral in the midst of an ongoing battle between two mob families, but his drams of brokering a balance between them are dashed when a crime syndicate from Kobe enters the picture. Meanwhile, the man who is to one day lead the Muraoka family is killed, leading to a fierce and bloody battle for control dominated by the opportunistic Uchimoto ([[Performer~P37048~Takeshi Kato~takeshikato]]). Jingi Naki Tatakai: Dairi Senso (aka Yakuza Papers, Vol. 3: Proxy War) was followed in 1974 by [[Feature~V312572~Jingi Naki Tatakai: Chojo Sakusen~theyakuzapapers4:policetactics]] (aka [[Feature~V312572~Yakuza Papers, Vol. 4: Police Tactics~theyakuzapapers4:policetactics]]). ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
