I love an anti-hero flick and this may just be the ultimate celebration of a loser who walks off into the sunset with nothing more than his questionable but at least finally existent integrity. Very funny, very punchy, and as others have said, very overlooked. Kazunobu Mineta outshines even Ryuhei Matsuda.
And now I know that peeing on someone pummeling my face will get rid of them.
