For his many fans, the words “directed by Takashi Miike” will be enough, but for those unfamiliar with the work of the grand madman of Japanese cinema – expect gangsters, violence and gloriously bizarre humour.
Reiji Kikukawa (Ikuta) is an inept rookie cop with a strong sense of justice. Fired for trying to arrest a city councillor caught molesting a teenage girl, he is secretly re-hired as an undercover agent and sent on a mission to infiltrate a notorious Yakuza clan.
