Directed by the infamous Japanese cult film director, Takashi Miike's "Ichi the Killer" is a masterpiece of insane cinema.
An ultra dark, deeply unsettling, extreme psychological thriller from the director of ‘Audition’. Ichi the killer is the most arresting and controversial movie of the last decade full of over-the-top violence, torture and gore. Based on the ultra violent manga comic of the same name, this delirious cinematic vision in freefall painfully unveils a dark canvas on which is played a terrifying battle of wits between the ultimate sadist and the ultimate masochist.
Lunging between chilling surrealism and graphic hyper-reality, Ichi The Killer is a unique and shocking viewing experience, standing firmly as one of cinema’s most notorious cult films.
