Needed English language film in my top 4 to make it look like I don’t have asian fetish
Wow. Goes from depicting youth gangs, Foucault Discipline and Punish to being a dissertation on the fragile mentality of teenage boys and what happens when it all comes tumbling down. And yet there is still so much more. Absolutely a masterpiece in all aspects - especially considering how engaging continues to be over it’s 4 hour run time. Almost like a roided Kitano film. Also probably one of the more authentic, compelling and enlightening period pieces of all time.

Super interesting look at democracy, how it can be twisted and how populism is endemic to the democratic system. Rich with commentary on not only teen boys, privilege and the political divide in America, but also looking at the American electoral and political machine in a way that is digestible and entertaining.
Who would’ve thought that the guy with the Raegan doll would’ve been a scheming little bitch?
A bit too American exceptionalist for my taste, but that’s only because of how the boys speak about America.
