containing multitudes since 2004
A really fun, zany movie with a catchy "twist" theme song. The girls fling 45 RPM records as weapons, for heaven's sake! This was definitely out on DVD a few years ago -- hope it still is.
Wow what a title. Image reminds me of 'Tokyo Drifter'. Is it like that?
Hasebe was definitely a disciple of Seijun Suzuki's, and a shining star at Nikkatsu in the pink movie department.The flinging 45s scene is a definite highlight, as are some of the musical numbers, and the fake, hypercolour backgrounds.I have it on DVD, a zippy pop thriller, well worth seeking out.
Much, much lighter in tone than Suzuki's films. More spoofy than sardonic. Still, I think most Suzuki fans would enjoy this too.
I'd say Suzuki-lite is a pretty good assessment.But there's very little fat on the bones of this flick, it really careens through its fairly ridiculous plot, which is always appreciated.
