Short Cuts: House of Bamboo (1955)

Excellent Sam Fuller film noir set in post-WWII Tokyo. Swift action, smoldering eroticism, and good performances by Robert Stack, Robert, Ryan, and Shirley Yamaguchi easily make this one of Fuller’s best. Fuller was always an interesting director and Bamboo is filled with plenty of his trademark psychological insights and social commentary. Highly recommended.
