Stylihsly Cook Japanese crime drama
The remake of a crime-noir classic by the same director. Updated to modern standards, with a female lead, lots of black, gallows humor. Definitely see the stylish takes that are seen in Quentin Tarantino, and the hip French directors. Not much depth, and the original in B&W with male lead should be sought after.
Impressive amalgamation of styles.

Picture Sergio Leonne crossed with John Woo and then add a big dash of Martha Grahmm.
Way out there
Unanalyzable (is that a word?)..wonderful.
Suzuki certainly hasn’t mellowed…

Pistol Opera is a difficult movie to watch. Scenes do not connect in a standard linear fashion. Movements are stylized, drawing more inspiration from modern dance movements than Tarentino-esque action flicks. Makiko-chan makes a compelling heroine, but we never get any insight on her character or any others. And the tempo of the movie slows towards the end, repeating certain shots, increasing the tedium and the desire for a more meaningful conclusion, which never comes.
