Branded to Kill

One of the most interesting Japanese films I've seen.
Why? The anti-hero (Joe Shishido)who loves to sniff the rice.
The insane creative cuts that edits out the boring parts. Drops you into time sequences in weird ways.
The visuals are dynamic and impressive. The production design serves the action and story.
The sex is raw and unforgiving, you feel like a voyeur.
It's in Black and White and invites noir-ish elements.
