Takashi Nomura (野村孝) (February 18, 1927 – May 5, 2015) is a Japanese film director for studios including Nikkatsu. The Criterion Collection described him as a "prominent, stylistically daring director".
He is perhaps best known for A Colt Is My Passport (1967), influenced by French New Wave filmmakers such as Jean-Pierre Melville, and by Sergio Leone-style Westerns. Nomura's use of still shots in the opening sequence has been compared to manga art techniques.
Other films directed by Nomura include:
- Women Smell of Night (1970);
- Blood Vendetta (1971).
- Takahashi Hideki's Captain Series 10 - Murderous Intent in the Pacific (1998)
- "Eclipse Series 17: Nikkatsu Noir". The Criterion Collection.
