Do a 1 night marathon, or take a punch card to get your fill over the weekend.

Anything can happen in a Takashi Miike film. Beginning with an explosive, six-minute montage of sex, drugs and violence -- and ending with a phallus-headed battle robot taking flight -- Miike's unforgettable DEAD OR ALIVE trilogy (1999-2002) features many of the prolific director’s most outrageous moments alongside some of his most dramatically moving scenes starring the popular duo Show Aikawa and Riki Takeuchi.

Dead or Alive 1
Tokyo’s underworld is torn apart by a turf war between yakuza gangs and invading Chinese triads. Miike piles enough warped characters and bizarre, twisted happenings into this conventional framework to fuel half-a-dozen Tarantino movies, while cheerfully borrowing -- and inflating -- key moments from THE BIG HEAT and KISS ME DEADLY. The apocalyptic finale will leave you gasping. 1999, 1hr 45min
