FUDOH: THE NEW GENERATION (1996)
A.K.A.: Gokudō sengokushi: Fudō
DIRECTOR: Takashi Miike
ASPECT RATIO: Cinemascope 2.35:1
DURATION: 99 mins
Based on a Manga series, Fudoh: The New Generation is a simple, even clichéd, gangster yarn that’s peppered with enough deviant sex and graphic
violence to nonetheless qualify as a singular experience.
Set on the island of Kyushu, Fudoh tells the story of successful high school student Riki Fudoh, who leads a double life in organized 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... and you know all hell is gonna break loose!
