A barkeeper saves a Yakuza boss’ life and thus makes his way up in the organization. However his fear of nothing soon causes problems.
Nobody makes grosser films than Miike, or uses form and style to elevate genre as much as he does. With all the blood, piss, and vomit you can stand, Miike’s version of Rikio Ishikawa is even more over-the-top than Fukasaku’s–yet, due to sensory overload, it seems closer to the real world. Combine this with Miike’s uncanny ability to place the camera in the absolute best position, and what you have is bloody brilliance!
Exactly what a remake should be! Miike makes the story his own, while throwing homage to the original on quite a few occasions.
