I saw Shark Skin Man and Peach Hip Girl last night. It's one of those Terantino-style Japanese gangster movie with odd sense of humor. Among all the funny characters in the movie, I thought Yamada stood out clearly. Yamada is a weird homosextual assassin/ham radio operator who starts out like a total pervert and turns into a bumbling heroic character who exits his role skewered by a samurai sword. The movie as a whole was not very memorable, but Yamada sure was. Watch the movie just to get your dose of Yamada.
