Zachary T.'s rating of the film Ichi the Killer

Somehow, this film keeps me curious and coming back. Every time I see it I'm more disgusted and put off, but I still watch it at least once a year. If you can get past the ridiculously overwrought violence and some pretty awful CGI, there's a movie that's fascinating in a morbid way, funny, horrific, well-acted, and for some reason, thought-provoking. I for one loved the ending.
