The Most Obscure of All?
The sixth film in the "Outlaw" series is apparently the most obscure -- IMDb has no idea who made this movie, and if it were not for the new Arrow Video release, it would remain completely unheard of. Hopefully this release brings more people looking at the film, because it seems there should be classes studying this.
Arrow Video is arguably the greatest thing to happen to cult film since... ever. There are many boutique companies out there, but it seems that they either focus on horror (which is great) or foreign classics (which is great). This leaves a huge amount of material untouched -- what about all the genre films that are not classics or horror? What makes this film stand out from the other five in the series is the rock music scene -- who knew about Japanese music in the 1960s? Apparently it was every bit as trippy and psychedelic as in American and England. Maybe there could have been a Japanese Invasion... though I suppose most people like to at least pretend they understand the lyrics.
