Ichi the Killer ( Koroshiya 1 )

A hyper stylized bloodbath. That's the basic gist of this movie. The creative use of camera techniques is the one continuously redeeming factor here. Sure, Kakihara's torturous habits are bizarrely entertaining, but aside from that there's nothing else worth mention. The messy plot construction had me trying hard to follow along as so many forgettable characters were spewing out left and right. I was not invested in any part of this story. The over-the-top violence becomes less interesting as well, because of this. Reception kills some of the impact.
