Ponderous and twisted

This is one of the goriest films I can quickly recall. It's known worldwide for the gore and violence in it. But it also is one of the most hilarious comedies I've seen in quite a while. Ichi works on two levels: A sick, twisted movie with violence and nudity in it brought together by a relatively meaningless plot for some. This works for the casual viewer, and if that person isn't an old lady wit... read more

Absurdity

To me, the core idea of this movie is the absurdity of violence. There's no point to any of it beyond people deceiving their selves or being deceived and manipulated by others. That's the only message I can get from this film; although, it's also good for a laugh if you've got a very black sense of humor.

" Date: 8/24/2020 Viewed: Blu-Ray (Well Go USA) Re-Watch Note: Today is Takashi Miike's birthday and I decided to celebrate his birthday by watching my favorite film from him. Ichi the Killer is one of my favorite movies that I saw growing up as a teenager in the 2000s and I even used to own the Blood Pack Double DVD that I bought from Best Buy back in 2007. After watching this movie again, I still love this movie. Ichi the Killer is a movie that mixes surrealism, stylistic violence, and raw em"

30 Days of Horror (30 movies items)

"Day 11: Most psychotic killer I'd say both Kakihara and Ichi are pretty messed up and definitely psychotic. But Ichi has some even more unsettling characteristics. Ichi hasn't quite come to terms with his psycopathy the way Kakihara has, so that's why he is my first choice. "
