Movie Info

This violent comedy is a cinematic bloodbath from cult filmmaker Takashi Miike. The story centers on a trio of chums trying to make their ways in the world after graduating school. Two of the fellows fall into the gritty world of organized crime. Meanwhile, the third of the group tries to walk the straight and narrow, working in a hair salon. However, keeping his nose clean proves to be harder than anticipated. ~ Matthew Tobey, Rovi

½

too disjointed to really be enjoyed as anything great, but it has enough moments to get by. Its really a lot of parts more than the whole but I'll remember some of those parts well, like a frustrated beaten young man punching his hand on a steel bar out of romantic frustration, or a woman yelling about wanting to just cry while totally drunk, or a man having fun with his friend as he removes part of a tattoo. I just wish there was more of a thru line with the characters and its a case where some of its episodicness isn't to its benefit. And the ending is just fucking crazy, going from action, suspense, comedy and then bizarre tragedy. I shouldn't like it and the humor is sophomoric but it is maybe the most Miike-esque part of all. plus dramatically it's always well directed, confidence of someone not a director of only a few films as he was up till this point
