    If we kill each other, all that happens is some rich guy makes 10 extra bucks.

    Liked it even more on rewatch honestly. Banana Fish is such a layered work and it just blows my mind how well it integrates its themes. Akimi Yoshida thoroughly understands the way that power & violence permeate American society from the top down, and showcases it with a depth and empathy that genuinely moves me. Totally breaks my heart.

    When the sun sets, it's all red. Then it disappears. But in my heart, the sun never sets.

    Peak Godard as far as it's a movie of People Talking™ but this one feels like it's on another level (in a good way) since it's all ideological? Bare bones plot & characters are just scaffolding for the monologues about Marxism-Leninism and honestly it kind of rules
