  • Shot in lush, noir-ish black and white, this dark, brooding, and beautiful film has been unavailable in the west since its release in 1998. It is nonetheless widely considered to be a masterpiece of hugely influential cult director, Shinya Tsukamoto. Goda, played with great poignancy by the director himself, is a middle-aged salaryman who comes home one day to find his world turned upside down. His girlfriend of 10 years has committed suicide, using a gun she was holding for a friend. Despairing, and confused by the discovery of an unknown side of his girlfriend, Goda descends into the netherworld of criminal activity and takes to the Tokyo streets. He retraces her steps in an attempt to find a Smith & Wesson Chief's Special, the exact gun she used for the deed, which he plans to eventually use in a recreation of her act. This luminous and moving film is exquisitely paced, and exhibits a deft artistic touch, as well as a keen emotional depth.
