(Japanese with English subtitles) When Katsutoshi finds trouble at work and hides out at his friend's titular nightclub, lives intersect and strange situations arise in this dark comedy set in the seedy underbelly of Tokyo nightlife.
All the women wear identical black halter tops, very nice touch, over fatigues. We really don't know much about anything and the weak ending reveals little. The cat fights are few, brief and tame. I did enjoy watching the film, although the usual WIP conflicts are absent. Not even one female guard.
This film had to be shot in a week or less. There wasn't that many set-ups. Assembly, talking to the warden, bath scene, bedding down, eating, a brief run, stick training and wandering around down below. Perhaps, a couple more scenes, I don't want to give too much away. Not many have speaking parts either. If they had another day to film something, like a riot, or do some explaining, it would have been so much better. They likely ran out of money or time. On the same day I watched Samurai Princess, an awful, brainless and misleading film shot in freezing weather, so Death Row Girls looks good by comparison
