Japanese pulp auteur Takashi Miike is back with a signature madcap, gangster romp.
Those familiar with the wild genre masterclasses of Audition 1999 and Ichi the Killer 2001 will feel right at home in this anarchic, full-throttle joyride spanning a single night in Tokyo. Young boxer Leo (Masataka Kubota) has just learnt he has a brain tumour when he encounters Monica (Sakurako Konishi), a call girl in deep with drugs and the Yakuza, the Japanese mafia. With the criminal underworld imploding due to ferocious in-fighting, these new lovers get caught in the crossfire. Amid the bloodbath, the prolific Miike’s blackly comic touches and unexpected stylistic quirks deliver at high velocity.
