I'm a big Fukasaku fan, but I've never seen Hokuriku Proxy War! It was his last gangster film, so maybe that plays into why it's so hard to find. Witzke mentioned Message from Space and Legend of the Eight Samurai as two of his weaker films, and I would agree (Last 70s to mid-80s Japanese film industry was god-awful), although his Samurai Reincarnation from that period is fantastic. Try to track down his Rampo adaptations, Black Rose Mansion and Black Lizard, they're really great and show off his range.

Sarah's comment that her favorite comics are movie stills from tumblr remind me of this Clowes quote from his Modern Cartooning book they Cary at my school's library;
"Study and contemplate the nature of pictorial stillness. What does the still picture have to offer a narrative that the moving one doesn't? Find and study an intriguing movie still from a film you've never seen, then watch the movie to see how and why it falls apart and loses its compelling mystique."

I can't wait to see all of these movies.
