probably not the best bed time viewing
didnt like it much.
just not very good.
what the fuck happened at the end?
maybe im tired, but i dont quite get what happened in the last few minutes , who actaully survived in the end ?
and what was Jiji up to?
cant remember that much.
it was all so confused seeming. just seemed meaningless to me.
is going on in this film? I mean really. 'spoilers' coming up...now. I don't think that kid survived because he had no head. I don't think anyone survived actually. The kid's dad was Ichi's long lost brother? Maybe?
Kakihara's extendable mouth and the cartoon violence was entertaining enough but I really didn't have a clue. Ichi was an assassin who could only kill if he was crying and had a wank afterwards?! WHAT THE HELL.
I know its weird... but i thought that Kakihara and Ichi were the same person...
Basically it was all in his head.
Thats propably way off... but thats how I saw it.
of done with being quite a bit shorter. Not one of Miike's best films, for me they are Audition and Shinjuku Triad Society. But the acting was amazing, and some of the scenes are unforgettable. Also, didn't Boredoms do the soundtrack?
was the best thing about it, excellent character - if only the movie around him made more/any sense, it was fine for the first hour and a half, then by the time they were on the roof any hint of plot there was had completely vanished.
jiji, and his lies/manipulation of ichi are what threw the story out of the window i thought - by the end i didntknow if he was lying or not.
