Movie Info

Japanese blood and guts auteur Takashi Miike delivers this high-octane surreal thriller. The film opens with a bang, a hyperkinetic, hallucinatory sequence brimming with ultra-violence. As the story unfolds, blood-thirsty mobster Ryuichi (Riki Takeuchi) and Jojima (Sho Aikawa), a cop with an ailing daughter in need of an expensive operation, are inevitably drawn together until the film's cataclysmic, utterly bizarre denouement. This film was screened at the 2000 Rotterdam Film Festival.
