On this episode, Kelby and I talk about the recent piece by Sam Pink, and how his whole style got lifted by the author of Fuccboi. We link that to Miike's 2002 masterpiece Agitator, in which low-level yakuza get caught up in the schemes of their bosses. We go over the movie in depth, discussing the pacing, the plot, and choices in depicting violence.
