I watched this movie over my winter break, and caught the last showing they had in Tokyo for it. I went in knowing nothing about it, other than it was riddled with some actors I really like (as an LDH film).

And I came out knowing.... not that much more.

The plot is really strange: It follows three characters on seemingly different paths and the movie goes into how their stories are intertwined. There's the oldies singer who has a very dedicated fan-base of mid-50 year old women, the delinquent who just got out of jail and wants revenge on his previous gang that just left him there to rot, and then the guy who's girl is in a coma after being shot.

There are just so many incredibly bizarre things about this movie. From the introduction, where a crazy woman is hurled out of a car windshield, someone actually having God appear in front of him - like a ghost - and tell him things to do, to the revengeful delinquent walking around with a knife in his back and at least 2 bullet holes for at least 4 hours. And that's not even covering half of it.

There really is like no plot to speak of. Events happen, but at the end you're just left wondering why you watched. It's so incredibly vague (that guy and his grandma has to be dead by the end of things and what he was seeing was the afterlife) and just so weird that when the lights turned on when the movie stopped I couldn't help but laugh for a solid minute trying to process what I watched.

If you want a really really out there movie, I mean, go for it. If you want to see your favorite actors (like I did), just know that you're getting into some really weird stuff and it's probably best watched with a friend or two and some strong drinks.
