Shinjuku Triad Society Review

Takashi Miike tries to get all the sex out of his system in one fell swoop with Shinjuku Triad Society, the first in a rough series of films called the "Black Society Trilogy" and Miike's first film that wasn't a straight-to-video production.

Mind boggling in its degree of bad taste, Miike fans will eat it up.
