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.)

Will never NOT be among my favorites. It is ridiculous, yes, but it does ridiculously gory correctly.
Stupid story. lot's of rape.
Absolutely bonkers. Over the top gore in the best way, insane characters and acting, ridiculous premise. My only real gripe would be the long run time. Really good, worth a watch.
Weird flex, but ok. I want Kakihara’s sparkled suit.
Ichi the Killer is my favorite extreme film of all time. I have many reasons as to why: It's got really good acting, the story is convoluted but it's fine, cinematography = perfect, kills also perfect, gore is also perfect, everything about it is perfect. A great film, watch it if you like disturbing movies.
