Great movie, but difficult to look at Jô Shishid

This movie is currently streaming on Filmstruck - that is, for a few more weeks before the bastards kill the service.

What a great movie is it too. Hardly shows it’s age except for the cars.

Never having seen Jô Shishid before, his face was a real distraction. My understanding is he’d had cheek augmentation surgery, but why? It made him look like he’d stuffed two humongous rolls of cotton in his mouth - somewhat like a human chipmunk. His unnatural looking face was a real distraction, but I have to say his acting chops were excellent.
