"... Ichi is probably the Citizen Kane of arterial spray movies, or at least the Casablanca."

When a yakuza boss is murdered and his money is stolen, both truth and revenge are brutally sought. Leading the charge is Kakihara (Tadanobu Asano), the bleach-blonde pain-junky whose interrogation methods are fetishistically sadistic. As the layers of the sordid tale are pulled back, it appears that someone is trying to turn rival gangs against each other. The centerpiece of this strategy is Ichi the Killer (Nao Omori), a mysterious and completely unhinged master of slaughter. When the final showdown comes, it's a psychologically cataclysmic event. This one-of-a-kind, over-the-top, stomach-churning, live-action cartoon from Takashi Miike (Crows Zero, Sukiyaki Western Django) remains an extreme and influential modern classic.
