I can’t watch scenes involving any sort of eye trauma. Try as I might, I always squirm, turn away and/or close my eyes. Just thinking about having something long and sharp shoved violently into my ocular cavities is enough to give me nightmares for the next several thousand years. If, like me, you have trouble consuming this sort of material, then the blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moment in the latest trailer for Masatoshi Yamaguchi’s “Ushijima the Loan Shark” might be a little shocking. I just wanted to give you the heads up.
A synopsis will help ease you into the madness:
Mirai Suzuki (Yuko Oshima) becomes responsible for her mother’s debt which is owed to loan shark Kaoru Ushijima (Takayuki Yamada). To begin paying off her mother’s debt, Mirai begins working at a dating cafe. Meanwhile, Jun (Kento Hayashi) is the ambitious and greedy company president for an event group. To borrow money, Jun visits Kaukau Finance owned by Kaoru Ushijima.
I don’t know why, but there’s a strong Miike vibe coming off of the trailer for “Ushijima the Loan Shark”. Then again, I might be tired. I’ll watch it again when I’ve had some sleep and I’ll get back with you. Look for this one to hit Japanese theaters on August 25th, 2012.
