From the director of AUDITION and BLADE OF THE IMMORTAL! One of the most influential pieces of genre filmmaking returns to the big screen in 4K!
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 Ohmori).
The Parkway is taking a deeper dive into genre cinema in 2018–come out and cast a vote for more bloody and action-packed Asian cinema while enjoying this modern classic!
