    Aronofsky really nails depicting hard-core drug use, love, and broken dreams in this.

    Most Japanese film covers very Japanese subject matter that is nebulous to my 外人 brain. This film is different. It makes me relate quite a bit since the satire is artfully executed and any cultural boundary is bridged with Radiohead and really good performances.

    I'd like to think this movie is a sequel to talladega nights, where texas ranger goes to Japan to learn how to go fast sideways.

    Why did they deviate from the original story? Not asking for a 1 to 1 recreation of this tale, but there seem to be a lot of artistic liberties taken here with the plot.
