When small-time Yakuza boss Ryuuich starts murdering rival gangsters in an effort to gain power in the underworld, Detective Jojima must weave his way through various underworld networks to end the bloodbath.

MUBI's take

We just love Takashi Miike’s gonzo cinema of violence, masculinity, and pop surrealism. One of the filmmaker’s finest achievements is the Dead or Alive trilogy. The first of these films is a dazzling Yakuza spectacle that culminates in a truly singular ending.
