“Like a stranger, almost science-fiction version of that section of TAXI DRIVER where Travis Bickle is trying to buy a gun.” -- josh lewis, LETTERBOXD

Crime noir madness from Shinya Tsukamoto (TETSUO: THE IRON MAN), the irreverent Japanese genre wizard! Goda (Tsukamoto) is a thirty-something documentary filmmaker. He returns home one night to find police cars and ambulances surrounding the entrance to his apartment building. When he gets upstairs he's told that his girlfriend Kiriko has committed suicide. With Japan having some of the strictest gun control laws on the books, Goda is left with total devastation and a mystery . . . one that he feels compelled to solve.
