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.)

As entertaining as it is insane. This is one of the best rides I've ever taken into a cinematic world. A manga come alive. Great and memorable characters. Great soundtrack. Over the top blood and gore in a comic book sort of way. A good story. This is one of my favourite films. Tremendous fun.
Reading all the reviews I was expecting a gorefest, but it wasnt that bad. Interesting story, likeable evil characters (everyone I guess), nice twists. Definetly I can reccomend to action fans, dont get scared by other reviews.
Can someone fix the subtitles? When Kaneko tells his son to go live with his mother it says "Go lie with your mother", which confused the fuck out of me. Dope movie tho
