Pornostar (Poruno suta)
Description: Toshiaki Toyoda makes his directorial debut with this hallucinatory vision of sex and violence set in Tokyo's ultra-cool district of Shibuya. The film centers on Arano (Koji Chihara), a sociopathic and silent type who is first seen shoving his way through a crowd with utter indifference to those around him. He kills without remorse or fear -- as he does to one trash-talking yakuza before dumping his body at the gang's doorstep. Arano meets his match with Kamijo (Onimaru), a low-level mobster who runs a date club in Shibuya. With business slumping and heat from the mob dons growing, Kamijo and his boys take out a couple foreigners and steal their massive stash of LSD. Afterwards, he and his gang celebrate with a hot-tub orgy featuring hundreds of floating tomatoes. While Arano and Kamijo, eye each other -- both aware of the other's violent, crazy tendencies -- the loudly dressed boss of a rival gang (Tetta Sugimoto) demands a cut of the stash. Meanwhile, when Alisu (Rin Ozawa), a date club prostitute who has the hots for Kamijo, swipes the acid and tries to sell it herself, things turn very violent.~ Jonathan Crow, All Movie Guide
