Movie Info

A beautiful Japanese madam and her ladies. A deranged, drug-addled Tokyo gangster and his crew. A sadistic serial killer on the loose. The intersection of these stories, and the interior world of the characters, plays out against a dreamlike backdrop of ultraviolence and orgiastic sex, as everyone tries futilely to rewrite their futures and cheat death. A modern, dreamlike take on the gangster genre, SHE'S JUST A SHADOW is the action-packed story of a matriarchal crime family engaged in a vicious gang war. A deranged killer is leaving his victims on railroad tracks all over Tokyo, and the only thing more dangerous than him is the vicious love triangle within the family itself.

Critic Reviews for She's Just a Shadow

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (3)

Writer/director Adam Sherman's apparent disinterest in his characters' hang-ups is maybe best illustrated by his movie's aimless plot.

Whatever is going on here, I suspect only the writer and director, Adam Sherman, knows for sure.

This utterly tasteless crime film about Tokyo's top madam, a drug dealer, a serial killer is one of the worst films of the year.

July 17, 2019 | Rating: 0/4 | Full Review…

Sherman piles on the gratuitous gore, nudity, drug consumption and reprehensible attitude towards women for the sake of it. Nihilistic and offensive, it leaves you with more than a sour taste.

July 17, 2019 | Rating: 2/10 | Full Review…

Whether or not one is seduced by the sensual appeal of it all, it's impossible to deny that this is a cinematic masterpiece.
