Jeans Blues: No Future (1974)


Jinzu burusu: Asu naki furaiha / Jeans Blues: No Future (1974)


Director: Sadao Nakajima
Stars: Tsunehiko Watase, Meiko Kaji, and Ryôhei Uchida.


Jeans Blue: No Future may be one of the lesser known Pinky Violence flicks (that in spite of the fact that it stars Female Prisoner Scorpion star Meiko Kaji), but that doesn't mean its one of the lesser ones as this story of crime and deceit is not short on violence and manages to be entertaining from start to finish! The story is something of a departure from the usual Pinky plot line as we focus on a pair of criminals on the run. Hijiriko makes off from the bar she works at with money and a car that isn't hers. Meanwhile, Jiro Katagiri is up to no good with his gangster friends and ends up making off with all their ill-gotten gains, much to their disapproval. The two misfits end up meeting after a car crash and soon end up on the road together in (another) stolen car. It's not long before the police take an interest in the crimes, and of course the gangsters are hot on Jiri's heels; meaning the two must scarper across Japan by any means necessary.


Director Sadao Nakajima gives the film a breezy pace and this is kept up well for the duration. The opening of the film is violent and bloody and while it never quite reaches this high again; there's still plenty of over the top splatter. The most interesting element of the film stems from the relationship between the two central characters. The director was possibly aiming to cash in on the success of the Female Prisoner Scorpion series a little with Meiko Kaji's character; who is her usual frosty self. She is offset well by Tsunehiko Watase's 'Jack the lad' character and the pair makes for an interesting central duo.
