RARA-AVIS: Samurai hardboiled

I don't know about hardboiled, but what about "Kill Bill"?

There was the Sydney Pollack-Robert Mitchum collaboration
"Yakuza" in the mid-seventies.

In music, try John Zorn's "Spillane" that has a cover from a picture from a film by Seijun Suzuki. I believe that Zorn, a long time fan of Japanese pop culture, knows his samurai and yakuza films. (The album, from the end of the eighties, is the best example of a movie without picture. It's cinematic, but just music and John Lurie's voice-over.)
