I would definitely say this is one of Netflix better movies. In 1954, former US soldier Jared Leto joins a yakuza. The story centers on a rival gang that is at odds with Leto's gang over who controls certain territories in post-World War II Japan. The tension of the war is still very much alive between this American and the Japanese. Leto gives a good performance and at times, even being the main star, doesn't have a lot of dialogue (which is even pointed out by a former soldier he was in the service with that he happens to come across one night). Kind of reminded me of Meiko Kaji during her FEMALE PRISONER SCORPION series from the 1970's where her actions, facial expressions and eyes do her talking for her. A solid film in my opinion. 7/10
Another whitewashed film :hanging:

Whitewashed? The cast was 95% Japanese with the exception of Jared Leto, Emile Hirsch and Rory Cochrane.

Yes, the protagonist; is an American white male, coming in to save the day.

Good reading up in here:

Yes but that's what the entire story is about. Not so much "saving the day," but the story is centered on a former American solider joining a yakuza in post-WWII Japan.

I really liked The Meyerowitz Stories. Probably the best thing he's done since Punch-Drunk Love.
this...
I could be wrong but I don't think that's one of his Netflix originals.. just one that he happened to be in that they acquired. Nonetheless, I really enjoyed this too.

Otherwise if you are looking for his stuff on there, it's par the course for his companies output. Silly but has some moments.
Go ahead, make my millennium.

Just finished Atypical....I thought it was pretty good outside of Jennifer Jason Leigh, I just really don't care for her as an actress.

But overall the first season was pretty pretty good

Is there any sign that this is coming to Netflix any time soon in the US outside of the fact that Netflix has most of its international rights?

I’m interested in this as well. Movie? Series?

I read the book last year in a sitting. It’s a pretty quick read but I enjoyed it. I’ve been thinking of getting the rest of the trilogy but haven’t yet (anyone read the other books? Worth a read?)

So go to the movies? It’s better than other fudge you’ve probably paid to see in the last 6 months.
