Takuya, frustrated by the constant bullying, wreaks his fury on his mother, Keiko, beating her over any insignificant excuse, even in front of his indifferent father. Keiko finds solace on drugs, when she is not prostituting herself. Eventually, an individual unknown to them, seems to establish himself in their house, proceeding subsequently into torturing all of them. Through actions of incest, murder and necrophilia among others, chiefly caused by the stranger 's presence, the Yamazakis manage to become a family again. Miike incorporates in Visitor Q the aesthetics of a reality show, thus resulting in a film resembling an experiment of what would happen if he was to direct a sit-com.
The film features astonishing drawing and animation, with the battle scenes and the ending sequence standing apart. 6. Akira (Katsuhiro Otomo,1988) Katsuhiro Otomo’s magnum opus, based on his own manga that stretches for more than 2000 pages, is one of the landmarks of the anime genre, being universally acclaimed and having garnered a large cult
Many beautiful women audition, there is only one though that truly stirs his heart, Asami Yamazaki. The young woman states that she is an ex ballet dancer who was lately working for a music producer. Yoshikawa warns Shigeharu to be careful, since he was not able to cross check Asami’s background, but he is already blinded by love. The film begins in the usual Japanese style, with hypnotic rhythm, scarce dialogue, almost no music and permeating realism both in the environment it takes place and in the characters. The first hour particularly does not look like a horror film at all, but rather like an indifferent social film.

Another splendid sample of Japanese indie cinema, 100 Yen Love depicts with raw realism, the contemporary life in the metropolis of the country, which is chiefly characterized by alienation and solitude. Ichiko is a 32 year old living with her parents in the first floor of the bento they own, while recently, her sister has also moved there with her son, due to her recent divorce. Ichiko is a true slob, spending her time playing videogames with her nephew, not helping in the shop whatsoever, both facts that constantly infuriate her sister. Moreover, even if her character is flawed, her appearance is even worse, since she is permanently uncombed and unkempt, to the point of usually looking like a homeless person. At some points, she actually reminded me of The Dude, in Big Lebowski when he was going shopping to the

I will classify Toyoma and Yoko as supporting characters who help Akio through their kindness when Toyoma offers food to the boy and Yoko becomes his source of joy inside the reform school managed by cruel teachers. In contrast, the spiteful educators of the reform school, Fusano, and his unfortunate circumstances are the antagonist to Akio’s life. His teachers, with exception to Yoko, treat him abusively as they tell him that they are worthless. Fusano’s actions were similar as she exploits Akio to work for the sake of earning money. To name a few, the early death of his parents, his repetitive separation from the people he loved, and the effects of the war itself such as; hunger, scarcity, poverty and death, are the circumstances which caused difficulty in his
