YAKUZA APOCALYPSE: THE GREAT WAR OF THE UNDERGROUND
GOKUDOU DAISENSOU
2015, Samuel Goldwyn Films, 125 min, Japan, Dir: Takashi Miike

Strap yourself in for one of the most outrageous and delirious assaults from Japan’s most beloved/demented auteur! YAKUZA APOCALYPSE opens in relatively straightforward fashion as local mob boss Kamiura (Lily Franky) shakes down criminals to keep his neighborhood safe. But Kamiura is a vampire mob boss with little regard for the rules of the international yakuza syndicate, and he enlists his protégée Kageyama (Hayato Ichihara) to help defend his turf. As the fighting and bloodsucking spiral out of control, the syndicate summons Modern Monster to squash the resistance. And that’s when things really go nuts, with bone-snapping action, slapstick comedy, stop-motion animation and man-in-a-suit monster mayhem pouring from the screen with glorious aplomb.


Screening format: DCP. No vouchers accepted for this show.
