New 4K Restoration!
Japan | 2001 | Takashi Miike
Takashi Miike’s ultra-violent gangster comedy—one of the seminal splatter films of the past 20 years—has been given the full 4K restoration treatment, in a complete, previously unseen director’s cut! This outlandish thriller follows a sadomasochistic yakuza enforcer who, while searching for his missing boss, encounters Ichi, a psychotic killing machine who is even more ruthless than he is. Originally premiered in Cleveland at the Cinematheque, Ichi the Killer was banned in Norway, Germany, and Malaysia. “Funny, absurd, nightmarishly visceral and, of course, deeply serious.” –Time Out Film Guide. No one under 18 admitted! Subtitles. DCP. 129 min.
