Burst City

Bakuretsu toshi

Japan, 1982

Burst City is essentially a feature length punk rock music clip. The film is set in a kind of post-apocalyptic Japan where everyone is a punk, a freak or a brutal cop. The soundtrack is made up entirely of awesome Japanese punk rock and fits the images perfectly.
