Saw this film last night and thought the "Small Role, Big Impact" trope should be added.

* DoingItForTheArt: The file cabinets in the movie were all filled by cards with information on them despite none of these card ever showing up on camera. The crew invented an entire city's criminal background just for the sake of "realism."

* DoingItForTheArt: The file cabinets BottomlessMagazines: Averted. Murakami keeps a running tab on how many bullets are left in his gun. In the movie were all filled by cards climactic scene Yusa is down to three bullets.

* OldShame: Kurosawa considered this film was "too technical" and that it had "all that technique and not one real thought in it." * PlayingAgainstType: A retroactive example, since Creator/ToshiroMifune plays the role of the rookie detective in this film, but is better known for the gruff samurai he played later in his career.

One of the first films to deal with the “older detective trains younger detective” plot you can see in films like ''Film/{{Se7en}}'' or ''TrainingDay''. No relation with the [[StrayDog manga]].
