It was announced that film director Sato Jun'ya died on February 9 at the age of 86. He joined the Toei studio and debuted as a director in 1963 with Rikugun zankoku monogatari. After making many yakuza films, he left Toei in 1968 and as a freelance director helmed many of the blockbuster films of the 1970s and 80s, including Shinkansen daibakuha, Ningen no shomei, and Tonko. He also directed for television. His last big hit was Otokotachi no Yamato (2005), which I have written about.
