The 100 Best Contemporary Japanese Movies - Psycho Drama has launched an ambitious project to compile 100 of the best modern-day Japanese movies from the last 2 decades or so. Featuring the best young actors of their generation - from Joe Odagiri, Takako Matsu and Tadanobu Asano, to Satoshi Tsumabuki, Hikari Mitsushima, Mao Inoue, Ryuhei Matsuda, Shun Oguri and Masanabu Ando to the current crop of exciting young talents - Shota Sometani, Yuya Yagira, Kamiki Ryunosuke, Sosuke Ikematsu, Kento Yamazaki, Fumi Nikaido and Ai Hashimoto. [ click here ]

The mark of a good actor is his ability to transform into a different character. Takayuki Yamada is such an actor. In Ushijima, the Loan Shark, Yamada is given a role that would allow him to further prove his mettle as one of Japan's most talented actors. In the film, he plays a ruthless loan shark who encounters the character played by Kento Hayashi. As Jun, Hayashi decided to "stiff" Ushijima and the conflict begins.

Watch and see how Yamada looks like in this movie!
