The Outsider (Drama 2018)

So here was an interesting movie that had some potential. Jared Leto played this white boy who was in Japan after WWII, got tossed in jail, and then through a series of events joined the Yakuza. Cool premise but how was the execution? Eh.

The movie had a slow feel to it, just like other Japanese gangster movies from the 90s/2000s. But as a whole it seemed like a focused attempt with amateur results. The plot wasn't strong enough to make up for the pace and ending. I suppose it was fair, but I didn't think it was that good of a film. It's good that Netflix is investing in different ideas though, so I'll give them props for that.
