  • Anthony De Luca's rating of the film Scoop!

    3.2 There's something about the digital gloss of these modern flicks that takes away from the out-and-out grot of the characters and their surroundings. Another modern Japanese film where the lead is a nihalistic F-up who despite his dubious morals, is still strangely likeable. Although better than the role given, Fumi Nikaido's adorability lifts the film from the gutter.
