Viewing Notes

Early Japan New Wave flick about a young man trying to weasel his way up the food chain as he gets involved with a variety of women. He hopes that each relationship will lead to an easy path to riches but of course he’s a total dick.

The story mechanics seem similar to another movie I may have seen. Feels like the kind of American drama that would’ve hit in the 80s.
