Battle Royale

Battle Royale

The highly stylized and über-violent BATTLE ROYALE was a fitting swan song for director Kinji Fukasaku, whose mastery of the exploitation genre is on full display in this hugely influential cult-classic.

When one of the greatest filmmakers of all time adapts one of the greatest literary works of all time, the result can only be described as epic.
