| and then some more sex and violence
This probably deserves a second viewing because I lost the drift a couple of times and found myself confusing the goodies and the baddies. I'm sure this is partly the director's intention, but probably not to the extent I lost it for a while. Never mind this really moves along and the confusion surrounding the participants and the minimal plot matters little. Great cinematic style with much variety, even use of black and white for flash backs and freeze frame for emphasis. Rousing score inspired by blaxploitation movies and a welcome and strong performance from the great Reiko Ike. Sex and violence, some debate about whether the cops or the yakuza are the good guys and then some more sex and violence. Very good but I'm sure I'll enjoy it even more another time.
