Day #22,015

Walk km 10,241-10,252: every block walk: Duff & Gladstone etc

Movie #2010: The Warped Ones (1960, Koreyoshi Kurahara)

Now this is what a JD movie should be. Opening scenes show Akira straight outta juvvie jail when he steals a car, runs over some guy, kidnaps and rapes the guy's girlfriend. And that's just for starters. There's no moral tales here. Akira is barely above ape level. Instead of just getting by on the basics like any other wild animal, Akira has learnt "kicks". He lives for kicks. His victims are civilized - they want to fight back but they're way outta their league.
After so many Hollywood JD flix where the JDs are just misunderstood youth that learn the error of their ways, it's quite a surprise to see the real thing.
