Japanese enfant terrible Sion Sono follows up his audacious 2013 feature Why Don't You Play in Hell? with this outrageous hip-hop musical set in a futuristic Tokyo, where warring street gangs are forced to unite in the fight against a power-crazed Yakuza (a hilariously unhinged Riki Takeuchi) with diabolical intentions. Driven by a thumping soundtrack and populated by a cast of authentic hip-hop artists, this vibrant, highly-stylized cinematic hybrid draws on a wide spectrum of cinematic influences ranging from West Side Story to Escape from New York while delivering outrageous action, colorful comedy, and jaw-dropping spectacle.
