Takashi Miike’s most delirious film in years, The Mole Song: Hong Kong Capriccio returns to the pop madness of Undercover Agent Reiji and turns it up to eleven, resulting in a yakuza extravaganza. Reiji Kikukawa (Toma Ikuta) is the most incompetent cop in Japan and he’s back. This time he’s up against the Dragon Skulls, a Chinese gang that’s made an unholy alliance with a dishonoured yakuza to bring pain on the almighty Suki-ya clan. ‘Only Nipponese cult helmer Takashi Miike can pull off a martial arts smackdown using a dripping toilet plunger as a weapon.’ (Variety)
