Smuggler - Katsuhito Ishii (2011)
Directror Katsuhito Ishii has dabbled in remakes (My Darling of the Mountains), as well as ambient video work, but now it looks like he's back to what he does best... making zany comedies. "Smuggler" brings Shohei Manabe's manga about an actor who takes a job helping the yakuza dispose of, shall we say, unwanted human baggage of the deceased variety. Satoshi Tsumabuki leads the cast and "Smuggler" is set for release on October 22nd.
