    Blindboy Boatclub revisits 'Black Rain' (1989)

    Blindboy Boatclub revisits 'Black Rain' (1989)

    On the first official episode of The Revisit, we sit down with Blindboy Boatclub of The Rubberbandits and the Blindboy Podcast. His choice of movie? 1989's neo-noir action thriller, 'Black Rain'. Starring Michael Douglas, Andy Garcia and Yusaku Matsuda, the story follows two NYPD detectives (Douglas and Garcia) who arrive in Osaka for a prisoner exchange of a Yakuza, only for them to be drawn into the crossfire of a gang war. By no means Ridley Scott's finest work, 'Black Rain' is nevertheless an intriguing movie that is riddled with visual style and some dubious connotations to American imperialism and the Yellow Peril. Blindboy talks 'Black Rain' and its visual impact, how it compares to the likes of 'Blade Runner', and how it's influenced vaporwave aesthetics.
