Hey New York City! Get Metrograph Tickets For ICHI THE KILLER In 4K Restoration Now!
Searching for his missing boss and a lot of missing money through the channels of the seedy underworld, Kakihara (Tadanobu Asano), a sadomasochistic yakuza enforcer, more than meets his match in the form of the mysterious Ichi (Nao Ohmori), a shy, sexually-repressed lad who, when enraged, becomes a virtuoso of creative slaughter. Miike’s manic manga adaptation was a phenomenon, appalling audiences around the world, and may never be topped for the sheer variety of ways that it presents to pulverize the human body.
Asano Tadanobu and Omori Nao lead the cast for the controversial cult hit that joins the raft of titles that have been headlining Miike as a festival feat not to miss given the recent rollouts of JoJo’s Bizzare Adventure and Blade Of The Immortal. Peep the promo below as well as the newest poster, and get your tickets now!
