Ley Lines

Ley Lines

Directed by Takashi Miike

LEY LINES moves from the countryside to the city and back, as three Japanese youths of Chinese descent (including THE RAID 2's Kazuki Kitamura) seek their fortune in Tokyo, only to run afoul of a violent gang boss (Naoto Takenaka, THE HAPPINESS OF THE KATAKURIS).

A group of Chinese youths living in Japan struggle to make their way in life and eventually find trouble with the local crime syndicate.

Cast: Kazuki Kitamura, Tomorô Taguchi, Dan Li

Artfully told story of people on the fringes; their hopes and dreams and desperation that leads to tragic but inevitable conclusions.

Ah, Miike. avant-garde exploitation, with a heart. his sense of place, and transitions from meat grinder to mute pathos are astounding. beautiful stuff.

Absolutely fantastic exploration of youth, crime, tragedy, and freedom. One of the best films I've seen on Shudder. Very, very glad that Shudder continues to expand beyond just horror and offer movies like this as well.
