Watched this last night after reading the above write-up.  Straight-to-video film that serves as a coincidental precursor to Run Lola Run.

A yakuza henchman chasing a drugged-up cashier chasing a failed bank-robber through a smoggy 80s Tokyo, becoming more and more delirious with tiredness while Yakuza and Police go to war behind them.

A lean 80 minutes, stranger and more comical than I was expecting.

And I did. And it's fun, too, very, very silly, and perhaps a little too contrived and daft by the end, but I can't deny that I enjoyed it because I did.

Also, as an aside, but one of the character's in the film wears a swirly black and white shirt throughout the film - and it's a shirt I too own! Now this is probably not of interest to anyone, but it's a shirt I've never seen elsewhere, and one that has been insulted on many occasions. Despite buying it in the mid-nineties I still have it too, so that's this year's fancy dress party outfit sorted.

And because I'm that sad, here is said shirt:

Gotta say, the film bloke is wearing it better. It's the apron and hair, you'll need a wig.
