PODCAST SHOUTOUT: Casual Cinecast (@casualcinecast)

SHOWNOTES: Welcome to Collateral Cinema's Anniversary Special! We celebrate one year of awesome podcasting by going back to the director that started it all: Takashi Miike! Our pilot episode focused on Miike's groundbreaking Audition; now, we turn our attention to his breakout western hit, Ichi the Killer. We discuss the insane amounts of violence and cruelty and how it has disturbed legions of cinephiles, the penetratingly rich and colorful cinematography, the many unique characters that populate this movie's universe, and the seamlessly urgent use of music to undercut the pacing, as we remember which movies have disturbed us more than any others. We invite everyone to dive with us into this intense and disturbing experience, and don't forget to look for us on Patreon and Podbean Patron!

Collateral Cinema is on iTunes, Chill Lover Radio, and wherever else you get your podcasts. Also, find us on Patreon; we will have exclusive full-length commentaries on our favorite movies soon!
