 DVD of the Week: (7/17/2004): Shinjuku Triad Society   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Tatsuhito (Kippei Shiina) is a detective in Tokyo’s Shinjuku district, the sleazy criminal underbelly of the city, ruled by warring yakuza and triad (Chinese gangster) factions.
Shinjuku isn’t quite as complicated, but it’s still sometimes a little more difficult to follow than it probably ought to be.
Disc notes: Artsmagic's DVD of Shinjuku Triad Society seems to have been derived from the same source as the Region 2 Tartan UK edition -- it's rather dark, isn't flagged for inverse telecine, and doesn't have a lot of image detail, which leads me to believe the problem is with the source itself.

The three spot the Shinjuku cop and escape in the car, not before Tatsuhito gives chase on foot and manages to keep up for a mile or so, barely out of breath (that Tokyo traffic must be a killer).
Shinjuku Triad Society impresses, not least in showing that Miike is able to make movies that aren't solely shock-fests.

 Shinjuku Filth - Junk
As you'd guess by the name, Shinjuku Filth is a side project of Shinjuku Thief, best known for dark ambient/orchestral material such as the excellent The Witch Hammer and The Witch Hunter albums.
To an extent this is true of the Shinjuku Thief albums too, but the boundaries there are more clearly defined, the careering less dramatic, and each album has had a fairly consistent sound.
As for the typical Shinjuku Thief fan, well they're used to Darrin V's experimentation and wild variations in style, so they should take this in their stride, even if they won't necessarily like it all.

So, when this time I went to Japan for the International Aikido Federation congress, I took several days off just to walk the streets of Tokyo, taking some 400 photos, discovering a Japanese life having nothing at all to do with aikido, and loving every minute of it.

On one level Shinjuku examines violence in society and paints a portrait of a world so hardened that truly no one in it is all good.
Shinjuku is an absolutely excellent film in all aspects, and I urge you to check it out no matter what level you plan to view it on.
On a technical level, the presentation of Shinjuku mostly belies the film's age: scratches and dirt are very infrequent, and it's certainly nice to view the film in such clean condition, letterboxed (with anamorphic enhancement) at its 1.85:1 ratio.

Obviously "The Scribbler" had its basis in the writings of Kafka, given that the work was originally composed to accompany an installation based on "The Trial".
Later, this conceptual starting point was then imbued with degrees of lyrical beauty and romanticism by the time of "The Witch Hunter" - which focussed more on the folk traditions and rituals which had become demonised by the church, rather than the more overblown supernatural elements.
Shinjuku Thief's debut CD, on the other hand, "Bloody Tourist" was a much more undisciplined work - covering all our musical passions of the time (world, ambient, rock, industrial, jazz, funk, noise etc etc.)

Kiriya is a Chinese-born cop on the mean streets of Tokyo’s Shinjuku district who thinks nothing of breaking a chair over a female suspect’s face to extract a confession, but is also a loving son to his elderly parents who have found it difficult fitting into Japanese society.
Kiriya’s younger brother Yoshihito is a lawyer, but he’s chosen to represent psychotic gangster Wang, who runs Shinjuku’s most feared Chinese Triad gang and profits from an organ trafficking operation run from a hospital in Taiwan.
His best best known pictures are the deeply twisted love story Audition, the flly comic gorefest Ichi the Killer, cannibal comedy musical Happiness of the Katakuris and the often surreal Dead or Alive trilogy.

In Japan an elevator is an indispensable part of a pub or bar, and Shinjuku's The Dubliners pub has two of them; there are of course also stairs to this 2nd floor pub, but an elevator is far more exciting and provides a grander entrance.
The Dubliners is located near the JR Shinjuku station on the Yamanote Line, one of the busiest stations in Tokyo, and its 2nd floor corner location overlooks two of the area's busiest thoroughfares.
A waitress in Shinjuku's The Dubliners is possibly one of the most attractive in Tokyo.
