La Farfalla sul Mirino = “The Butterfly on the Viewfinder.”
…or so the internet tells me. i don’t really speak italian. i mean, if you catch me within a few days of watching all 6 hours of THE BEST OF YOUTHmy comprehension of the language may be a bit better than usual, but i’m really just an american. as opposed to THE American, which the Italian posters for Seijun Suzuki’s acid-jazz yakuza freak out BRANDED TO KILL apparently inspired.
Criterion’s new editions of Branded to Kill and Tokyo Drifter hit the streets tomorrow. they are very, very pretty. but don’t lick them.
I’m curious as to what the Italian title is. I might have to ask Lidia!
