I haven't seen Firefly Dreams, but I second the choices of Not Forgotten and 
Electric Dragon. My other votes would go to Tomoyuki Furumaya's Bad Company, 
Takashi Miike's Visitor Q, as well as Dead or Alive 2 (although it 
officially came out last year).

>That brings me to another question: what was the worst Japanese film you

Deeply disappointing or downright awful were Nobuhiro Suwa's H Story, 
Takashi Miike's Family, Katsuhito Ishii's Party 7 and Eiji Okuda's 
directorial debut Shojo.
