Ichi the Killer
Directed by Takashi Miike
A masochistic yakuza and a vicious hero face off in Takashi Miike's gory cult hit. Ichi is a repressed man who becomes aroused only when inflicting violence - which he does at a level few others can match. Kakihara is the masochistic enforcer who dreams of experiencing the pain Ichi can inflict. As the two circle each other in a deadly dance, everyone who crosses their path meets a horrific end. A title sequence which emerges from ejaculate sets the tone for this highly controversial film, which features some of the most repulsive gore ever put on film. (In Japanese with English subtitles.)

Awesome movie! Definitely nothing else like it.
2 skull rating for gore only.
yeah you can't help but love Kakihara
The main bad guy did such a good job. I couldn't tell if his scars were real or not but the characterization of his psycho nature was truly real as there are people out there that are like that. It's such a plus to see that characterized so well in a film. I think this movie was truly a good one in that regard. There are other things I could go on about but it's best you watch it for yourself to decide what is real or not. Have fun!
