Hags and there flamboyant emo other halves. The kind you see hanging around Hot Topic or Borders having indepth discussions about how every one else in the world sucks. Most of the one's where I live are fat chicks.

and worthy of seeking out for any fan of noir. However, my one qualm with the movie is the twist at the end. It makes emotional sense, but logically seems like a massive stretch. Maybe not that they kill him, but that they confuse him for Sebastian. Anyway, the movie was still good enough for me to overlook the lapse in logic (akin to how I feel about Signs), and I really hope it finds an audience here in America on dvd.

If so what did you think, and what do you know about the chances it has of American distribution?

I fuckin' hope so. Just Another Love Story was an excellent film that I will enjoy more the next time knowing that I can turn it off, or leave, once I see trees at the end. Oh, and as for REPO and the Hot Topic crowd apparently that's very inaccurate, so some other dude said in another talkback. REPO is evidently above mainstream goth.

I may have been a bit of a cunt to you in the past, but damn if you don't have the best taste in movies of any of the other guys on this site.

I don't always agree with the films Mori and Harry salivate over, but they have an appreciation for foreign films that I rarely see in people on our side of the world.

After I saw Tokyo!, one of the thoughts that really stuck in my head about the Michel Gondry's piece is that it was like a Hayao Miyazaki anime, especially as it got to its third act. A lot of how the scenes were framed and just how the narrative flowed reminded me of the Studio Ghibli films.

Gachi is available on region 2 DVD from YesAsia.com and cdjapan.co.jp with English subs if you have a region free player. If you live in Austin, I'm pretty sure I saw it on the shelf at I Luv Video on Guadalupe last week, but I could be wrong. As for REPO, I really liked it. I do not shop at Hot Topic and I've never seen ROCKY HORROR. I pretty far removed from that scene, but I still liked it a lot. I think some kids that shop at Hot Topic and some kids that like to wear a lot of black clothing will probably dig the shit out of REPO as well, but, hopefully, so will some other people. Though I will admit, it's been pretty easy after seeing it to make fun of some of the sings. But I still thought it was a cool concept and I'd like to see it again.
