Takashi Miike’s ICHI THE KILLER has endured as one of the most influential pieces of genre filmmaking of the last two decades, and now it returns in a stunning all-new 4k restoration — approved by Miike himself. This visceral, bloody, and often hilarious film follows Kakihara (Tadanobu Asano), a notoriously sadistic yakuza enforcer whose search for his boss’ killer brings him into the orbit of a demented costumed assassin known as Ichi (Nao Ōmori). Perfect for a Friday Late Night Movie screening at the Rio, ICHI THE KILLER is, «a thoroughly shocking gorefest that will surely entertain those with strong stomachs and a penchant for brutal violence.» (Rotten Tomatoes)

«Takashi Miike layers a blood-stained commentary on a toxic world in which men offer protection to men but really end up dooming them to exist within a spasmodic, shambolic, and hypermasculine sphere of violence.» (Village Voice)

«Funny, absurd, nightmarishly visceral and — of course — deeply serious.» (Time Out)

«Unhinged even for Takashi Miike, Ichi the Killer suggests a bloody and ejaculate-stained Rorschach inkblot, reveling in ultraviolence that can be interpreted to flatter any adventurous audience's sensibilities.» (Slant Magazine)
