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.

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. ????

Dai-ichi (第一) is a compound modifier phrase of Japanese origin, meaning number one. Takashi Miike cast a brilliant artist who portrayed a psychologically elaborate disposition of coveted evince.
Other films are bête noire in juxtaposition <3

Paulyn Sun’s performance is influentially and sublimely analogous to an Asiatic Helen Bonham Carter.

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!
