When a mob boss is murdered and his money goes missing, Kakihara, a notoriously sadistic yakuza enforcer, goes searching for the killer. On his quest for the truth, he comes face to face with a psychotic assassin known as Ichi.

MUBI's take

Following the needling horrors of Audition, Takashi Miike cemented his reputation for gonzo extremity with this provocative manga adaptation. With an iconic antagonist in Tadanobu Asano, Ichi the Killer is an irrepressibly kinetic and genuinely subversive ode to “the greatest pervert of all!”
