Director - Takashi Miike

Based on a popular manga this Takashi Miike film is an incredibly original, warped and visceral journey which defies genre. When the Yakuza boss goes missing his second, the masochistic and sadistic Kakihara determines to torture and murder his way to the truth. Ichi is meak by day but by night with the “help” of a former police man he transforms into an instrument of revenge, donning a fancy outfit with retractable blades in the boots he slices and dices with graceful anger. Ichi and Kakihara are set upon a collision course and all we can do is sit back and watch the sparks fly. This is beyond gory and despite being more action than horror there are plenty of scenes that will disturb most viewers. Miike is a superb director and this is a powerful piece of work, epic, breathtaking and more than a little deranged.

Gore - this is way beyond gory, you have been warned
