Seijun Suzuki meets the Grand Guignol in this wild hallucinatory yakuza drama, directed by Japan's gonzo cinema auteur Takashi Miike, about one of the ugliest family squabbles this side of Oedipus. The film opens with lifelong gangster Iwao Fudoh (Toru Minegishi) killing his grown son after an important mob deal goes south, as his younger son, Riki, looks on. Fast forward ten years, Riki Fudoh (Shosuke Tanihara) is the coolest kid in high school, who also runs a band of school-aged assassins.

If you're a connoisseur of this type of gory head-banging, you should be impressed.
Comparatively tame when compared to Takeshi Miike's later shock cinema classics.
Every so often a film comes along that just breaks your heart... and then there are films like this one that hit you in the head like an aluminum baseball bat.
Restraint is not a concept in the cinematic vocabulary of Miike Takashi.
