CRIMINAL WOMAN: KILLING MELODY (1973) ***

In this tough as nails yakuza flick, Reiko Ike stars as a ballsy, take no shit chick that’s out for blood after the yakuza murders her dope peddling dad. After she unsuccessfully tries to murder the yakuza boss responsible, she’s sent to jail where she’s befriends four women, one of whom is Miki Sugimoto. After Ike gets out of jail, her and her jailbird buddies set out to play the yakuza gangs against each other, Fistful of Dollars style. The film has some nudity (but not a lot) and an excellent knife fight between Ike and Sugimoto, who yet again prove themselves to be among the toughest chicks working in Japan in the early 70’s. Their performances, along with the crackling plot, make this flick highly recommended for yakuza movie fans.
