Takashi Miike cut this movie to the strains of the 1971 progressive rock album "Satori" by the Flower Traveling Band, which he learned of through costars Joe Yamanaka and Yûya Uchida, who were also the band's founding members. Miike found the album to be way ahead of its time and was delighted at how well and inconspicuously it cut into a movie made 30 years later. See more »
This movie did a great job of showing the bond between male friends. I absolutely loved the integration of the high fashion these sophisticated Tokyo lads portrayed. With this, they did a great job. On the other hand, I was appalled with the extreme sexual graphics and nudity that was on the screen. There were so many alternative sexual lifestyles that were thrown at the audience that I felt bombarded with pornography. I had never in my life scene people having blatant obvious sex on the movie screen like that before, this movie was completely low on character and morals. I was concerned with moms taking there young teenagers to this movie for a girls night and being outraged by what they were being exposed to. Other than this shocking experience, the movie was well done and creative about these lads and how they experienced love in the Big city, for that I give it a 7 and for the rest, I give it a 4
