“Ozu’s most enjoyable stab at a gangster picture, mixing the thrills of the Western with compositions and edits that served as a forerunner to a mature, post-war style.”
– Time Out (London)

“Ozu characteristically charms us with injections of humour, visual rhymes and homages to Hollywood…  The sets and cinematography were reputedly influenced by Sternberg and Hollywood gangster movies of the early 1930s. There is certainly an emphasis on glass surfaces and light and shadow,  as well as a busy mise en scène, all of which are unusual in Ozu.”
– Senses of Cinema

“A stunningly beautiful Ozu silent — rich b&w tones, crisp compositions, 
beautifully modelled lighting on faces, and a subtly soft-focus glaze over everything.”

– David Cairns
