Manga + City of Industry

Man, read 2 of the most fucked up bizzare and fucked up mangas ever in my life. And thats saying a lot coz Ive read Ichi the Killer before but on a plain out fucking insane quotient nothing can beat "Shamo" and "Crying Freeman".

Shamo was so disturbing I could only read the first volume. Freeman was visually spectacular but you had to like suspend all disbelief. Ikegami's artwork was superb as usual. Nobody can do action and sex scenes as well as him. I also loved the poetry that popped up periodically amidst the savage violence.

Also caught a little known flick called "City of Industry" on IFC. Nice little caper indie flick. Great cast, well shot and with some nice lighting.

All in all a good day.
