Read Jennie Kermode's film review of New Battles Without Honor And Humanity Box Set
The Boss's Head

This new box set finally brings together Kinji Fukasaku's much-admired trilogy, and it's the perfect complement to the box set of the original five. The films are supported by fascinating interviews with Fukasaku biographer Sadao Yamane and screenwriter Kôji Takada, both of whom have extensive insights to offer and will help viewers get a lot more out of the films. Naturally, these contain spoilers, so you will probably want to watch the films first.

Alongside these are an attractively illustrated information booklet and the original trailers (plus teaser trailers) for the films. Curiously enough, the trailer for the third film (Last Days Of The Boss) itself contains a spoiler, so proceed with caution.

This box set contains DVD and Blu-ray versions of each of the films.
