Yakuza Apocalypse ★★★

If you've seen any of Takashi Miike's more whacked-out films, but especially the Dead or Alive series and The Happiness of the Katakuris, you'll have some clue of what to expect from this demented yakuza/martial-arts/fantasy mashup. I wish it were half an hour shorter, and that I had some more context for the very local humour, but the latter at least is on me.
