Junk Food

Modern-day Tokyo has a secret: It’s just as gritty as any other city long associated with crime. Director Masashi Yamamoto paints a dark portrait with a cinema verité style as he follows a young woman (Miyuki Ijima) in the process of making over her life. Shunning the boring conservatism of a computer-programming job, she dives deep into gang life, abusing drugs, indulging in anonymous sex and living life on the very edge.
