Godspeed you Black Emperor! Has one of the greatest names in cinema history!
16 July 2001 | by kaiserspikeSee all my reviews

Well,its an informative movie about a Japanese moped gang.I don't know if it makes much sense.The black and white production was dodgy at best.The movie shares its name with a Canadian band.I don't know why it appeals to me so much,but it just clicked.
