Plot – Spoilers:
A prominent yakuza gangster Ozaki displays increasing signs of insanity and so the Boss asks one of Ozaki’s gang-members Minami to drive him to another town where he is to be killed.
Minami, a nervous and virginal man who owes his life to Ozaki is unsure how to proceed. But things appear to roll his way when Ozaki accidentally dies during the journey. Minami stops by at a cafe to take stock but soon begins to encounter one bizarre situation after another, including Ozaki’s body going missing from his car.
Gozu has all the comical craziness expected from a Takashi Miike film and one of the most entertaining finales to a movie.
