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.)

haha nice to find this here definitely worth a watch if you need to see something unusual kinda b-movie-ish at times but has great scenes to compensate interesting characters, good acting, good effects (from bad to great, depending... forgive the dated cgi)
Fun artsy movie. Also love Kakihara is incredible what a chad.
Just watch it. At the very least, you'll get a ride out of this one.
I mean, it's a decent enough crime or action movie. it seems like a lot of times people assume that graphic violence and Gore makes something a horror movie oh, I didn't find this movie scary at all, despite the graphic content
Classic. Cult Classic. To say stylish would be an understatement. And yes it is like every genre of film mixed together, and it’s own unique, novel genre. Dope ass film art.
