Default Fudoh: The New Generation

Ha, yesterday I saw this kick ass movie, realy this shit is great, it had to be cause it's from one of my favorite directors Takashi Miike, who directed "ichi The Killer", "Dead Or Alive", "Audition", "One Missed Call" etc......

I think this movie was one of his breakthrough flicks, check the review below, u gotta see it



Despite Takashi Miike's recent emergence on the international cinema scene, his 1996 production Fudoh has been doing the rounds of film festivals for quite a while and has gained a fervent fan following. Little wonder, since this celebration of excess will leave few souls untouched. Be it in a good or bad way.



Set on the island of Kyushu, it tells the story of successful high school student Riki Fudoh, who leads a double life in organised crime. With his gang of underage assassins (forerunners of the kiddie killers in Dead or Alive 2 (2000), including five-year olds with hand guns and a teenage stripper shooting deadly darts from her vagina) he not only controls the goings-on at his school, but aspires to take over criminal affairs on the entire island. Fudoh's true motivations are not just a lust for power. An extensive flashback at the film's opening shows how as a child he witnessed the grisly murder of his older brother at the hands of his yakuza boss father and his subsequent wish for revenge. Buckets of blood flow (literally) when Riki and the kids start an assassination campaign against the top figures of the local yakuza, with his father as the ultimate goal. The underworld goes into a state of panic and calls in mysterious and powerful problem solver Nohma (Riki Takeuchi looking every inch the comic book tough guy). Riki's father meanwhile sends out his own weapon in the shape of a former government agent, who goes undercover as the high school gym teacher and uses methods even more violent than those of young Fudoh's minions.

Based on a manga series, Fudoh's unflinching approach is not without basis or precedent. In fact, it is very much in tune with its origins and cultural roots, in manga but also in cinema. The term 'comic book movie' is often used for derision, but this attitude, born of cultural elitism, brushes over the centuries old legacy of the Japanese manga, which is as culturally valid as the jidai geki genre. Fudoh follows manga's stylistic (in terms of for instance composition, framing and costume design) and narrative trademarks quite closely, and adds to that a strongly developed generational gap theme, foreshadowing Kinji Fukasaku's Battle Royale by four years. In Fudoh as in Fukasaku's film we find the youth-gone-wild theme that has been a staple of Japanese cinema (and also in manga) since the emergence of the 'seishun' genre in the late 50s. Like many of those films, Fudoh sides with the young and bears a sense of distrust in the behaviour of the old.



Director of photography Hideo Yamamoto (a Miike regular who worked on Bird People in China, Blues Harp and Dead or Alive to name a few) gives the film a striking clarity in lighting. This crisp, clear image, also seen in Miike's Full Metal Gokudo (made one year later, but lensed by Shohei Ando), is a very effective counter point to the garish colour that floods the film's numerous action sequences (reminiscent of the colour palette used by George Romero in his comic book horror movie Creepshow, 1982).

Fudoh is deliriously violent and packed with the kind of outrageous, transgressive details (hermaphrodite sex, anyone?) that have become Miike's trademark. It's the kind of film that has 'guilty pleasure' written all over it. In 5-foot high neon letters. It's another testament to the talent of Takashi Miike that Fudoh is thematically provocative and thoroughly inspired at the same time.



As might be guessed from the film's very open-ended finale, the struggle between Riki Fudoh and Nohma would continue in two decidedly inferior sequels, Fudoh II - Nohma Strikes Back! and Fudoh III - Revenge of Fudoh, both from 1997 and directed by Yoshiho Fukuoka.

Awesome movie, best part is when they got one of the 4 crime boses in the back of the cop car and they stop for coffee and he drinks it and gallons of blood just start pouring out of his face,

i read your post on the isle
i didnt think ppl would watch these kinds of movies so i dont post up threads like that

yo the movies come out in japan (in japanese with no english subs)
and i speak and write and read japanese
i think why it takes time to reach you guys its coz you have to wait for the subtitles
and that takes awhile

american films take time to come here tho
fantastic 4 is coming out in like 1 week or 2
mr. & mrs. smith comes out in december
star warz just came out like 1 month ago
with hitchhikers guide to the galaxy and land of the dead
sucks man

i saw the inital d movie
it was in chinese with japanese subs
its pretty dope

i could recommend you some good japanese movies

Peace man,

Man, I pracically like every genre of asian movies. If you can recommend me any Miike Takashi-like movies,that'll be fine.

It ain't easy to find good asian movies around here, but so far I managed. I'd like to have all movies where Kou Shibasaki is in and Meiko Kaji movies.Those are my favorite asian girls

But,recommend some man, Japanese thriller and horror is always good aswell.

PEACE
