For those of you who are unaware, Tomorowo Taguchi is like… one of the coolest actors EVER! Ex punk rocker Taguchi is an actor who can pull pretty much anything off, but is probably regarded by most as a character actor of sorts. He just seems compelled to the stranger characters out there. Whether it’s the homocidal gay triad leader from Shinjuku Triad Society (pictured left), the wild mad scientist from Full Metal Yakuza or just a wild samurai with funky hair in Kunoichi: Lady Ninja. The has put in some performances to say the least. Now it seems he’s trying his hand at directing for the second time (still haven’t tracked down his first film) with Shikisoku Generation. From what the guys over at nippon cinema have to say, the plot revolves around a young man in 1974 who is obsessed with Bob Dylan and that whole movement. He and his friends decide to make a trip to a small island after hearing promises of free lovin’.
Not sure what to make of it yet, it could go any way, but with Taguchi at the helm I’m sure it won’t be all too ordinary. Check out the teaser trailer below!
