Ichi the Killer (2001)

3 1/2 Stars (out of 4)

Ichi and Nasty

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

Japanese "B" movie master Takashi Miike follows up last year's Dead or Alive and Audition with this new gross-out classic. A sadistic gangster tries to avenge his boss by hunting down a brainwashed (and possibly schizophrenic) killer named Ichi. Bodily fluids of all times spray the screen while Ichi slices a man in half and filets the face off of another.
