Summary: In short this movie dosnt go anywhere and dosnt really try to say anything. Its dull and not very stylish. If you watch the first half an hour you have seen it all. The Chu Isikawa sound track is the best part of it. Avoid.
Summary: The director of the very Ballardian/Cronenbergian works Tetsuo and Tetsuo II: Bodyhammer seems to have created a really rather mediocre film here. Which is a shame, because for the first 20 minutes or so it looked like Tsukamoto was exploring old ground - particularly in the scene where the central character (aptly played by the director himself) beats and caresses himself with his own gun.

Summary: I'm a huge fan of Japanese movies, but this was really tough going. A bleak black & white movie with the director playing the lead role himself. He doesn't give too bad a performance - it's a pity the rest of the cast don't match up. An exercise in nihilism, so don't expect any laughs.
