Gothic & Lolita Psycho is an outrageously over-the-top revenge flick that only the Japanese can get away with – and it’s a whole lot of fun! This movie is basically just five stylish action sequences [Yuki’s executions] tied together with minimal plot and character development! The 4th execution is the best! Her name is Lady Elle (Misaki Momose). She is an eye patch wearing, whiny school girl assassin who is like a live-action anime character! This lengthy sequence is stunningly awesome in its absurdity! The 1st execution is the next best! Her name is Sakie (Minami Tsukui). She is a sexy, kimono-clad yakuza girl! First, Yuki must fight Sakie’s hentchman in a Kill Bill-inspired showdown!
