This movie is great. I've seen it many times and my enthusiam still increase at each time. The complex storytelling mix with extreme stylized direction by Takashi Ishii make this an unforgettable experience. The violence is intense and at some point graphic but never gratuitous. The director pushes the boundaries of "homoeroticism" action film and all the technical aspects of the film are inventive and flawless. A must-see and one of the best action films ever!
