In order to settle a business dispute, a mob leader murders one of his own teenage sons. The surviving son vows to avenge his brother's death, and organizes his own gang of teenage killers to destroy his father's organization.
A yakuza enforcer is ordered to secretly drive his beloved colleague to be assassinated. But when the colleague unceremoniously disappears en route, the trip that follows is a twisted, surreal and horrifying experience.
Without a home and feeling no obligation to Japanese society or Yakuza, Ryuichi (Takeuchi Riki) and his small group decide to make their own place by trying to take over the Shinjuku underworld and the drug trade from Taiwan. As they plan an all-out-assault on the remaining Chinese and Japanese mafia kings, only Detective Jojima (Aikawa Sho) stands between them and complete domination. Written by

Every movie made by Miike is a completely new experience. Forget everything you have ever learned and thought about him and start all over.
Each and everyone will move the earth beneath you. It's a visual experience and very demanding on your soul. Miike tries to step over the line with every new movie.
The intro is one of the worst/best I have ever seen so far in my life. It's like life on speed! Then the movie moves into attitude, action, violence and some taboos! No other director would use as much kinky stuff as Miike does in this movie. So, if you can't stand scat and animal sex, beware!!!
Riki Takeuchi is one true great actor. He is perfect for his role. Mean and nasty and a borderline psychopath. Great Fun if you love Miike!
