Gozu, Miike Takashi Yakuza Horror Theatre Poster

Gozu (Gokudō kyōfu dai-gekijō: Gozu) (DVD) (2003) Directed by Takashi Miike (Thirteen Assassins, (2010), and the very soon to be released Hara-Kiri: Death of a Samurai, (2011)), which will premier at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival), starring Hideki Sone, Show Aikawa and others.  To begin with it is quite probably important to know that the title in Japanes translates, in English, to: “Grand Theatre of Perversion and Fear: Cow’s Head“.  That having been said, one is certainly less surprised to witness the series of rather bizarre scenes, interspersed with elements of what at least on the surface appears to be a yakuza thriller, that make up Gozu.  There is, admittedly, a bit of perversion, and a bit of fear, and, yes, a cow’s head, amongst other…curiosities.

We recommend that you purchase your DVD.
