DEAD OR ALIVE 2: BIRDS

Takashi Miike, Japan, 2000, Arrow Films, Cult

“To paraphrase Heraclitus, ‘One cannot step twice into the same Takashi Miike film’.”
-- DIABOLIQUE MAGAZINE

Ever the trickster, Takashi Miike’s sequel/remix of his explosive DEAD OR ALIVE -- filmed only a few months later -- once again casts “V-cinema” (Japanese straight-to-video) badasses Sho Aikawa and Riki Takeuchi, but as new characters: rival yakuza assassins who previously were childhood friends. After a botched hit, they flee together to the island where they grew up, and devote their deadly skills to a more humanitarian cause.
