Hanada (Suzuki regular Joe Shishido again) has a life filled with peculiar obsessions. Within his marriage, he can only become aroused by inhaling the scent of boiling rice; within his profession, he is the Number Three-ranked hired killer in the Underworld—with a consuming desire to become Number One.

Shot in stark black and white CinemaScope, this “Cubist” gangster film is widely regarded as Suzuki's masterpiece of deconstruction-as-demolition. Of course, it resulted in his blacklisting from the industry for a decade.
