The last of three films, linked by theme rather than by character or story, which form Miike Takashi's acclaimed Tirad Society Trilogy (begun with Shinjuku and Rainy Dog), Ley Lines turns its focus on the rise of the Chinese gangster in the Japanese underworld. Bored with their life in a rural Japanese village, three boys of Chinese descent decide to head for the bright lights of Tokyo in search of excitement and adventure. Soon, however, they find themselves caught up in Tokyo's infamous Shinjuku district. Here, debauchery, drugs and violence form the basis of their daily life. Before long they find themselves in grave danger, as the local crimelord wants them all dead... This brutal exploration of Japan's criminal fraternity displays Miike Takashi's celebrated flare for kinetic action and stylish innovation, and should not be missed by fans of this great director.
