I just watch Seijun Suzuki's Branded to Kill and thought it looked fantastic. I was curious if anyone here has seen it and might know how they achieved the negative look, only used for less than a minute about two thirds through the film. Also does anyone know what kind of lenses and stock were used. Being a Japanese film, I am guessing they might have used Fuji Neopan. On IMDB, which I take with a grain of salt, they list a cinematic process called Nikkatsuscope. I am guessing again that it has something to do with the lenses used. I watched it streaming in standard def on netflix and it looked great.

Japanese studios would name their anamorphic systems after themselves, just as WarnerScope, RKO-Scope & HammerScope.

According to this Nikkatsususcope originally used Dyaliscope lenses.

Though I'm sure they later added Japanese and other anamorphs.
