STRAY CAT ROCK 3: SEX HUNTER (alleycat rock 3; nora nekko rock: sex hunter) (1970 JAPAN) D/W: "TAKASHI FUJI" (YASUHARU HASEBE) W: ATSUSHI YAMATOYA P: MASAYUKI TAKAGI
The late Hasebe created this series and returns with an entry closer in spirit to the original, with a convoluted, timely exploitation spin on racial confusion, hatred and identity amongst urban youth gangs out for kicks. Meiko Kaji and Tatsuya Fuji return as gang leaders, with "half breed" Rikia Yasuoka co-starring. With Jiro Okazaki and the girl group The Golden Half (no Akiko Wada this time). It`s good fun, but i`m not sure why it`s held in higher regard than the rest of the series. Screenwriter Yamatoya (who died in 1993) wrote many oddities, including INFLATABLE SEX DOLLS OF THE WASTELAND (which he also directed), BRANDED TO KILL and DOGURA MAGURA. Parts 4 and 5 followed.
