There are plenty of bizarre and hilarious characters in this Takashi Miike classic that was considered so violent, it was banned in many countries.

    One of the all time greatest movies made. A tale of true psychological horror. It depicts violence in all it’s forms and sex. It shows the bonds we all share with both masochism and sadism. We can see ourselves in Ichi and Kakihara. The dance they unveil is not one of death, but of life itself, one of struggle and pain. I hope Hollywood never decides to do a remake of this film. If you can read the maga, it is so worth it!
