Ichi the Killer (also known as Koroshiya 1)
I enjoyed this movie. Many claim that it is very disturbing, but it is doable. Not all acts are graphically shown. It is based on a manga. It contains sexual violence. The story is disturbing.
The gore was not realistic. It is comparable with stuff like Braindead (also know as Dead Alive). I like that kind of gore. I watched the uncut version. It was enjoyable and interesting. I do think that it could be shot a lot darker or scarier though. It can be seen as a dark comedy. Some stuff is a bit over the top. The story is original enough to keep you entertained.
Audition is another movie rom Takashi Miike.
Audition (Ōdishon) had a great story, but I found it overrated. They often call Audition disturbing, but it was rather average in my opinion. The story was interesting though. It could work better if the cover didn’t make it so obvious that it is a horror movie.
