Day #21,686

Movie #1285 (#105 this year): Sha Ji(1970,Mitsuo Murayama)

Pretty good Hong Kong movie made by a Japanese director.
The attempt here is to duplicate Hitchcock and it's not a bad try. It could probably pass as a Chabrol.
Note: I don't see anything on the IMDB website about why Mr Murayama moved to Hong Kong to direct. However, his very first Japanese movie was "The Transparent Man vs. the Fly Man" - that could be a clue.
