Killer on the loose! This week in The Q we revisit the work of maverick director Takashi Miike as he spins this unsettling, blood-soaked yakuza yarn with the (2001) cult film ICHI THE KILLER When mob don Anjo mysteriously disappears, his protégé Kakihara vows to find the people responsible. Sporting a blond head of hair and a yawning, pierced slash for a mouth, Kakihara is no ordinary gangster and his methods are equally unorthodox. Meanwhile, a shadowy character known as Jijii deftly manipulates, for his own nefarious ends, Ichi, an unbalanced but ruthless killing machine clad in a superhero suit. Pining for the sadistic abuse of his boss, Kakihara learns of Ichi from a Hong Kong hostess and sets out to find this fabled butcher, hoping he can inflict the pain that Kakihara craves… Check it out to just how much we enjoyed this particular ride, or to see if we wanted out of the car! All of that and our Top 3 Non-Traditional Super Heroes.
