    One of the strangest pieces of Japanese cinema ever made, Gozu is a surreal and visceral film of cartoonish perversity from Takashi Miike (Audition, Ichi the Killer). Minami is a low-level yakuza ordered to assassinate his eccentric boss, who also happens to be his closest friend. When his target disappears before he can do the job, Minami begins a search that leads him through an increasingly bizarre town, and seemingly his own mind. He is pursued by a lactating woman, a transvestite coffee shop owner, an American who reads Japanese dialogue off giant cue cards, and the minotaur-headed Gozu. Detached from genre and thoroughly unpredictable, Gozu is a stand-out in Miike's filmography. Nightmarish and hilarious at the same time, the film weaves themes of love, loyalty and re-birth with a demented post-logic only Miike could imagine.
