Among the last yakuza flicks made by Japan’s Nikkatsu studio before it went all-porn, the five Stray Cat Rock movies featured Meiko Kaji as the stern leader of a women’s motorcycle gang. In this third installment (1970) the beautiful bikers’ primary responsibility is showing up shoulder to shoulder, silent and implacable, whenever Kaji’s brutal boyfriend and his gang are kicking the crap out of a hapless Amerasian fellow. Director Yasuhara Hasebe, who originated the series, has an unerring taste for kicky, colorful 60s kitsch that triumphs over the threadbare script; this resides somewhere between the spaghetti western and Beyond the Valley of the Dolls. In Japanese with subtitles.
