Underground Hero: Love To Hate Me is an excellent mini-documentary by Tokyo-based videographer Luke Huxham. The film follows Morohoshi-san, a Japanese gangster who’s living between the lines, mixing with the undesirables and modifying his Lamborghini in ways most of us would never dream of doing. 

“You can’t really just walk up to these guys and ask them to be in your film. You don’t walk into Kabukichou after midnight and start trying to film people with tattoos all over their bodies unless you want to have your nose broken. You need to know someone that has a good relationship with the people in these underground cultures and ask them to invite you in for as long as you’re allowed to stay which is usually not very long!”
