Graveyard of Honor
Goro Kishitani gives one of the 2000s greatest performances. Miike's cool detachment from, yet close proximity to, the film's maelstrom of violence and Ishimatsu's brutal downfall make this a work like no other. The vicious, rough flipside to the excesses of Ichi the Killer and the Dead or Alive films. One of the 21st century's seminal films, and easily one of the most brutal films ever made.
