Director Kern Saxton’s crime/thriller “Sushi Girl” has been on my must-see list all year. However, my busy schedule as of late has prevented me from checking it out on VOD. If I do nothing else over the holiday, I am going to sit back, relax, and give this intriguing slice of cinema its proper day in court. After all, how can you possibly go wrong with Sonny Chiba, Jeff Fahey, and Danny Trejo? Let not be so quick to answer that particular question in public.
Anyway, here’s what the film is reportedly about:
The film centers on the compelling character of a man called “Fish,” just released after six years in jail after successfully not ratting on those involved in the robbery that sent him to prison. The night he is released, the men he protected with silence celebrate his freedom with a congratulatory dinner. The meal is a lavish array of sushi, served off the naked body of a beautiful young woman. The sushi girl seems catatonic, trained to ignore everything in the room, even if things become dangerous. Sure enough, the unwieldy thieves can’t help but open old wounds in an attempt to find their missing loot, with violent results.
In addition to the aforementioned cult favorites, “Sushi Girl” also stars Mark Hamill, Tony Todd, Noah Hathaway, James Duval, Andy Mackenzie, David Dastmalchian, Cortney Palm, and Michael Biehn. If VOD isn’t your thing, you can catch the film in select theaters on January 4, 2013. The international poster lies below.
