    The Visitor in the Eye

    ★★

    Nothing could prepare me for joe shishido as black Jack. The coolest guy in Japanese cinema history with some lazy face paint and a cape like a last minute cosplay
     get the fuck outta here 

    There are a handful of signature obayashi shots that he’s toying with in this but the rest is not great. Clearly it took THE 80S for him to really let loose (cocaine?).
