Is ‘Gozu’ Coming to a Theater Near You?

You better hope so! Japanese cult director Takashi Miike’s Gozu is one of his most sly and twisted films ever assembled, and now you might get a chance to see it! From the man who brought you Audition, Dead or Alive, Ichi the Killer and many many more, comes a tale about a missing Yakuza ‘brother’ who turns up missing a few “pieces”. Inside you’ll find details on where you might be able to catch a screening of the flick.

Pathfinder Pictures has announced the first round of theatrical playdates for Takashi Miike’s delirious horror film/Yakuza drama GOZU. The movie will open July 16 at New York City’s Cinema Village, August 13 at the Landmark Kendall Square in Boston, August 28 at the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, TX, September 10 at the Landmark E. Street Cinema in Washington, D.C. and September 24 at the Landmark Varsity in Seattle. More summer dates will be announced soon. GOZU stars Hideki Sone (from Miike’s AGITATOR and GRAVEYARD OF HONOR) as Minami, a young gangster assigned to kill his older mentor. But things don’t go as planned, and Minami is soon confronted with all sorts of odd characters and bizarre situations, leading to a truly twisted climax.
