    Writer-director Samuel Fuller’s House of Bamboo (1955) is a gangster-noir for the post-war world: hard, fast, and out of control.  Shot entirely on location in Tokyo and Yokohama by the brilliant cinematographer Joe MacDonald, it gives us a look at a brutally exploitative Japanese-based American gang led by a compelling sadist (the one and only Robert Ryan). Caught up and over his head is the relatively innocent Eddie (Robert Stack), whose burgeoning love for a “kimono girl” (the lovely Shirley Yamaguchi) is counterpointed by his involvement with the complicated crime boss.  Also featuring sterling performances from Cameron Mitchell and Sessue Hayakawa.
