Incidentally, Wild 7 is about criminals who are recruited to be cops so as to murder other criminals because the rule of law is a sissy lie, grow up! Mochizuki has done variations on the concept for over forty years, but only six volumes’ worth of material have ever been legitimately released in English - by ComicsOne, back in the early ’00s. Most people just remember the anime OVA from 1994-95.

More an experience than a movie.

There are images here, particularly the one shown by the poster above, that will stick with for quite a while.

Beautifully shot too.

"One year earlier, Daniel’s suicide note had been released on Gawker. “The fact is that any kind of ordinary life is an insult to those who died at my hand,” he’d written. “How can I possibly go around like everyone else while the widows and orphans I created continue to struggle?” I remember waking up that Saturday and finding my wife reading it at the kitchen table, crying. By the time the weekend was over I’d made like CNN and forgotten it. Speaking statistically, on the day that Daniel killed himself, 21 other veterans did too, and we know this because it’s been reported lately as though it’s novel. Most big media outlets have covered the number itself as the full story, usually tying it—as Daniel’s parents did—to the failures of the VA. “US military struggling to stop suicide epidemic,” was how the Guardian put it, while the Times noted, “Baffling rise in US suicides plague military.” Twenty-two a day is high, but neither baffling nor anomalous. The average number of daily veteran suicides in 1999 was 20. Since then, it has never come up shy of 17. If anything, the new numbers show improvement over 1999, when veteran suicides were a higher percentage of total American suicides than they currently are: 25 versus about 21 percent. (So part of the story is just that more Americans are killing themselves.)

This is an important and worthy read.

"I wanted to give this character, a young woman a sense loss in her life and that she’s not afraid to talk about it. That’s one of the main reasons why I wanted to tell to story through the lens of a young woman. I think historically it’s looked down upon if a woman speaks in an autobiographical matter. And it bothers me to see women in film usually depicted in an over-dramatic fashion moving from one major crisis to the next." - Casey Brooks

Within months of leaving the professional kitchen for what turned out to be a non-stop voyage around the world, I found myself in the Mekong delta sitting down and getting hammered with a group of former VC. The senior member of the group was a very old dude, who when I asked if he felt any animosity towards me, towards my country, why he was being so damned nice, laughed in my face and started ticking off all the other countries he’d fought in his time: Chinese, French, Japanese, Cambodians, Chinese again. He basically said, “don’t flatter yourself that you were anything special—now drink!”.
