When Roommates Attack: 2LDK (Watch the entire film!)

How do I find some of the movies I watch? It's usually via 6 degrees. You watch one film from a director (in this case Kitamura) and that leads to another film which leads to another, etc. Or then again, I ask Insano Steve what he's been watching.

2LDK is one of those films.

Part of the Duel Project (read about that here) Yukihiko Tsutsumi's 70 minute roommate versus movie is part black humor part chick on chick violence. And it's fuckin awesome on so many levels.

So what's this about?

Nozomi and Lana share an apartment in Tokyo. They have both auditioned for the same role in a movie, and know that the shortlist has been cut down to just the two of them. As they wait the night before finding out who will get the role, their personality clashes erupt into an all-out battle.

Just pure hatred by Nozomi and Lana as they fuck up each other's shit and battle until the last woman is standing. Seriously, this is a hilarious, twisted flick on so many levels. If you've ever had a roommate, you know what its like to have somebody get under your skin. But usually it doesn't involve katanas, chainsaws and knives.....or does it?

Enough talk. Somebody has put the entire movie (with English subtitles!) on YouTube. Shhhhhhhhhhhh. Now you can watch it too. I've posted all the parts below. Get your katana out and slice and dice!

First, the trailer.

OK here is the entire movie. Tell me what you think if you watch the entire movie. It's only 70 min!


  1. Will definately check out!

  2. This sounds great, Jeff. It's 2:30am where I am now, so I need to watch this tomorrow. Seriously I really need to check this out. I'll keep the youtube secret on the DL. Haha

  3. I loved the hell out of this. It's really impressive that it never loses your attention, even though it uses such a small cast working in such a tiny space. I would like to see an American remake with Lindsay Lohan & anyone from The Hills, but only if it turns into a shoot during filming. <3 your blog!

  4. Yeah, 2LDK is awesome. I picked this up used for practically nothing somewhere, forgot I had it, and then found it months later while organizing my DVDs. I decided to watch it that night with some friends and we were all very entertained. So good. Great actresses, direction, violence, and a perfect running time.

  5. Thanks CWL. Richard, yeah its one of those movies thats short and to the point and hilarious to boot.

    Its free! So watch it during work!

  6. That movie was awesome. I mean it was very entertaining. This is one of the good japanese movies. I love the end. XD
