Overview

Seijun Suzuki meets the Grand Guignol in this wild hallucinatory yakuza drama, directed by Japan's gonzo cinema auteur Takashi Miike, about one of the ugliest family squabbles this side of Oedipus. The film opens with lifelong gangster Iwao Fudoh (Toru Minegishi) killing his grown son after an important mob deal goes south, as his younger son, Riki, looks on. Fast forward ten years, Riki Fudoh (Shosuke Tanihara) is the coolest kid in high school, who also runs a band of school-aged assassins. Flanked by two lethal bombshells in schoolgirl outfits -- Toko (Tamaki Kenmochi), who sports an Uzi, and Mika (played by porn star Miho Nomoto), who sports a blow gun and freakish muscle control in her nether regions -- along with a bevy of commando elementary school kids, Riki slowly seeks revenge on his father and his associates, just as Iwao's gang is planning to merge with an even more nefarious outfit hailing from Kyushu. Explosions, decapitations, and hermaphroditic coupling ensue.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Jonathan Crow
Perhaps one of the hippest and certainly one of its most prolific directors working in Japan during the late '90s, Takashi Miike masterfully fuses Seijun Suzuki's tweaked pop-art aesthetic with Koji Wakamatsu's pornographic lyricism to direct this exploitation-cum-surrealist flick. Miike creates a world where kiddies in yellow school caps pull .45s; where a poisoning victim explodes in an improbable amount of blood; and where beautiful strippers with lethal genitals prove to be hermaphrodite rapists. While Miike's dizzying inventiveness wows the viewer for the first half of the film, he fails to develop the sort of visual poetry that makes his later masterpieces Dead or Alive and Audition linger in the mind after the lights go up.
