"A masterwork from one of Japan's greatest contemporary filmmakers, Shinya Tsukamoto. His other creations, most notably the sci-fi mindblower Tetsuo (1986), have all contained explicit fantastic and supernatural elements. Tokyo Fist, on the other hand, is a boxing movie, but unlike any other boxing movie you've ever seen. It eschews any and all conventions, presenting a bleak vision of life in modern-day Japan. It's a wild and often upsetting film that you won't soon forget."

"Tsukamoto plays Tsuda, a wimpy insurance salesman who is engaged to Hizuro, an apparently normal young woman. Unfortunately, muscle-headed boxer Takuji an old friend of Tsuda's enters the scene and seduces Hizuro away from him. Tsuda resolves to get her back, and begins training to become a boxer himself. Drunk on the violence these two exhibit, Hizuro begins her own metamorphosis, mutilating her body with tattoos and piercing. The story boils down to a three-way psychic duel of sorts, in a blood-gushing finale definitely not for the squeamish.
That's about all the "plot" we get. The film is an extremely claustrophobic three character piece...or, if you like, four character piece, the fourth character being Tokyo itself. As these three lunatics become increasingly obsessed with destroying each other and themselves, the city is always present in the fore and background, with its giant sky-scrapers, faceless crowds and sterile, futuristic architecture.
Tsukamoto's strengths are definitely not in the storytelling department, but then the story is clearly not important here. We're meant to experience this twisted tale through the disturbing images with which Tsukamoto fills the screen."
