BLACK LIZARD

The greatest detective in Japan must match wits with the notorious jewel thief Black Lizard, a sultry, diabolical villainess played legendary queer movie star Akihiro Miwa, who is intent on stealing the humongous Star of Egypt while adding to her collection of human stuffed dolls! Political, psychedelic, pulpy, transgressive pop cinema from director Kinji Fukusaku, the genius responsible for THE GREEN SLIME and THE YAKUZA PAPERS. This is one of the wildest movies to ever explode out of Japan. Featuring a cameo by writer and future right-wing revolutionary suicide Yukio Mishima as a human statue! (Tommy Swenson)
