Radiance Films pays respects to YAKUZA GRAVEYARD (review)

A cop with brutal tactics is recruited to a task force anticipating a war between rival yakuza gangs, and he discovers that he is seemingly one of the few immune to corruption and betrayal in this cynical film from the director of BATTLES WITHOUT HONOR AND HUMANITY.  Also starring Meiko Kaji.
