Reviewing Criterion's "Branded to Kill," DVDBeaver comments "this very early non-anamorphic Criterion DVD looks very poor. It is quite hazy with shallow contrast."

My eyes concur with the views by DVDBeaver and I would still say the Second Sight discs, admittedly far from perfect, are still better.

After yakuza boss Kurata dissolves his own criminal empire, a rival kingpin offers a position to Kurata's top operative, Tetsuya "Phoenix Tetsu" Hondo.
When the fiercely loyal Tetsu declines, Otsuka taps unstoppable Tatsuzo the "Viper", a ruthless gun-for-hire, to assassinate him.
Events occur in the film, mostly off-screen, and the conversations reflect those events and inspire action among the characters, most of which gets cut away from before it fully plays out.
It's a very enigmatic film, and language is absolutely necessary to the experience--it's also about the articulation of different cultural ideals and their juxtaposition, which demands verbal understanding in order to make any kind of sense.
