      Audience Member A bit surreal, confusing and entertaining, this bizarre comedy makes you want to watch more japanese movies. Be patient at first, once you get the first weird scene, everything gets better. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member Japanese dark comedy at its finest. Fans of Scorsese's yuppie nightmare dark comedy After Hours and Schumacher's Falling Down might like this movie about a salaryman who gets tangled up with yakuza goons and goes a bit postal. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member It started off well, and I thought I was really going to like it, but then there were some slow scenes that dragged on for too long and some preachy anti-guns and anti-alcohol scenes that were handled a little too blatantly. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member <a></a> <img src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_gRWMZ-x-wV0/SRravKCh9kI/AAAAAAAAC3Y/_-zCM93sdzg/s400/Monday_still.jpg" width="240" border="0" /> Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member fuckin' brilliant. Sabu's best film by a longshot. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Audience Member This is the first time in a very long time that I feel so confused about a movie. Mostly, because I really tried to like it after it was recommended to me and after I had read so many favourable reviews. However I was a bit dissapointed. What I can definetely say is that I absolutely adored the soundtrack!! The performances (most of them) were good as well. And I loved the grotesque humour. Apart from some few scenes which were brilliant (my favourite is the funeral), most were artificially streched. And I found the plot disappointing even though I thought it was so promicing in the beginning. Maybe I just need to see it a second time?
