Plot – Spoilers:
A hypnotist Jijii controls a young psychopathic killer Ichi to take advantage of two gangs at war with each other. Ichi is so brutal in his hits, there are cleanup men who mop up after him.

When Yakuza boss Anjo goes missing, his next-in-command Kakihara makes it his mission to unravel the situation. Kakihara is a pure masochist and when he hears Ichi has his sights on him, it titillates him.

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

      Seems ok.
      If on Option 1, please make sure the playback speed button (bottom right) isn’t turned on.

    I’ll have to watch this again. (Hey– it wasn’t here before I asked for it! Not that I think I’m the only one.) It goes beyond the extreme violent, and even beyond a parody on the extreme violent. I think what is interesting here is the manner by which the sick behaviour of (some of) the characters seems just so natural for them, that the viewer is bound to believe this is an actual psycho disturbed world portrayed here. It isn’t funny, it’s crazy and sick in a convincing way, and that is no easy matter.

    Am I the only one hoping for a BL ending of Kakihara with ? In their extreme sadomaso way. ????
