Editorial Reviews

The final film in Takashi Miike’s ‘Black Society Trilogy’ finds the darkness of racial bigotry in the heart of Japanese society and bureaucracy. Three boys of mixed race seek to escape from Japan, but their search brings them up against dangerous gang boss Wong, who holds the key to their departure. Once again, Miike astounds with this compelling and outrageous yet honest look at sex and violence at the fringes of society.

Alright, I guess I'll take first crack at this. To be honest, I haven't viewed either "Shinjuku Triad Society" or "Rainy Dog" in about a year and a half. "Ley Lines" completes the Triad Society Trilogy, and I watched it last night. Very good movie.

"ley lines" - alignments of ancient landmarks, beacons, and holy places (churches, stone circles, cairns, etc.) stretching across the landscape at various intervals, believed to be remnants of prehistoric trade routes. Forming topographical "straight lines," Alfred Watkins - whom "re-discovered" ley lines in 1921 - went further to link them to the winged messenger Hermes: the Greek god of communication and boundaries, and the guide to travellers on unknown paths. Years later, their importance would be interpreted as lines of "cosmic energy" on Earth, and suspected to be a link to UFO sightings.

The "guide to travellers on unknown paths" aspect is what chiefly concerns the title.

Miike Takashi is very often labeled an exploitation director, and no true fan of his films could really argue this point. C'mon, you know it's not ALL about the art of the grotesque. However, the man breaks some legitmate bulk when he wants to. Cases in point are "The Happiness Of Katakuris" "Bird People In China" and (IMHO) "Dead Or Alive 2: Birds". Anyway. We all know all his films aren't flawless, in fact, I was rather unimpressed with "The Boys From Paradise". Furthermore, I grow more curious of his m.o. when he crosses genres, such as with "Ley Lines". A deft blend of street crime and unexpected drama.

Two brothers and their foreign friend are having a hard time finding a niche to fall into within Tokyo's drug (glue) racket.

Most of Miike's films are too far out there for me but a couple of them have just blown me away, and this is one of them. You can read someone else's review to get a synopsis of the movie but I'll just tell you why I like it. From unusual cinematography to very likeable and fun characters I just find this to be a very endearing movie that tells the story of society's outcasts taking some power into their own hands to make a better life for themselves. Thanks Takashi!
