All About Lily Chou-Chou follows two childhood friends, Shusuke Hoshino and Yuichi Hasumi, from the end of their junior high school run until the beginning of high school.

He was skilled at kendo, and had an attractive young mother. Yuichi, on the other hand, was a quieter boy who fell in love with the music of the odd musician Lily Chou-Chou. During a group trip to Okinawa, Hoshino had a traumatic near-death experience and his personality changed from good-natured to dangerous and manipulative. In high school, he takes his place as class bully and shows his newfound power by ruining the lives of his classmates.

This Film Uses This Truth & Works A Story Around One Of The Rumours Why The Set Was Buried.Priceless Antiques Were Sold To The Set Designers Of The Film, These Antiques Were Supposed To Be Cursed. One Was Supposed To Be Cursed With The Spirit Of Im-La-Ra The God Of Chaos. This Is What This B-Movie Uses As It's Monster/Killer. After Digging Up An Amulet The Spirit Of Im-La-Ra Is Released From His Prison & Being The God Of Chaos Goes On A Killing Spree.The Film May Have A Bad Script, Story & Feature A Lack Of Acting Talent But Is Somewhat Decent In Other Aspects Of Filmaking It's Not A Complete Disaster.

xGary X (gb) wrote: Paul Newman plays a horse trader raised by the Apache who finds himself the protector of a group of travelers when they are ambushed by outlaws. Obviously another variation on the Stagecoach theme, Hombre instead casts the "Indian" as the anti-hero and the white men as the villains. This switch-around forms the basis of the story as the main topic is that of racism; the steely-eyed Newman is initially shunned and vilified because of his native American heritage but finds himself emotionally blackmailed into becoming their saviour as soon as they need his help. Newman is extremely charismatic as the enigmatic frontiersman, the irony being that the actions the whites see as "savage" are in fact born of the cold logic of a lifetime struggling for survival. The white characters are shown as either hypocritical or naive and soon forget their moral outrage when they find their lives on the line. The plot may be a little predictable but it's also a very interesting character study and social commentary with a superb central performance from Newman. Well worth a look for those who like westerns with a brain.
