Tokyo Fist is a film that is completely and utterly deranged and there is something that's not right about these characters. I have heard of Shinya Tsukamoto's Tetsuo: The Iron Man before and it is a film I can't bring myself to watch quite yet. Instead, I thought I would watch Tokyo Fist as a safer pick to watch because I can't really do body horror. However, what I got was something that reminds me of Jan Svankmajer's type of cinema. I was admittedly disturbed by what I saw on screen but also I wanted to see where the love triangle between Tsuda, Hizuru, and Kojima went. What this film ended up being was a tale of Kojima's betrayal of Tsuda in retaliation to Tsuda's betrayal in the past. The two are both fighting over the girl and fighting over their own ego while Hizuru has this awakening of going out on her own and doing what she wants instead of listening to her pissy little boyfriend Tsuda and honestly good for her
