Seen Bad Lieutenant? It's basically that but really fast cut and set in Japan. Bunch of lowlifes doing lowlife stuff.

I had to stop halfway through. There's a lot of really unnecessary s***** a****** in this movie. I'm halfway through and there's been at least three scenes of it. It really doesn't need to be there and contributes nothing to the movie as a whole. It just makes me want to stop watching. I'm here because I want to be scared, not to watch a long drawn-out chain of s***** a****** scenes with no substance to it. Don't go into this expecting a horror movie or to be scared. This is something I wouldn't consider categorizing as a horror film. The mood is whacky and all over the place. It jump-cuts constantly and it's super jarring and it doesn't do the film any favors. You get little shreds of 10 second scenes that cut from one to the next with barely any, if any transition from one cut to the next. I tried to be invested in it but I just couldn't do it.
