One Of The Most Controversial Films In History.
Now Available For The First Time Ever In America.
In the near future, the economy has collapsed, unemployment has soared and juvenile crime has exploded. Fearful of their nation's youth, the Japanese government passes The BR Law: Each year, a 9th grade class is sent to a remote island where they will be locked into exploding neck collars, given a random weapon, and forced to hunt and kill each other until there is only one survivor left. Chiaki Kuriyama (KILL BILL) and screen legend Takeshi Kitano (BOILING POINT, BROTHER) star in the movie that has been argued, acclaimed and banned around the world. More than a decade later, it remains one of the most savage, shocking and emotionally powerful films of all time. Now experience the complete Director's Cut of Kinji Fukasaku's uncompromising masterpiece -- nominated for 10 Japanese Academy Awards -- available uncensored and unrated for the first time ever in America.

|On the sleeve art...||
Thanks for the shout-out! It's indeed a Photoshop Disaster (that site even covered it!). I'm guessing the designer and his bosses figured the printed sleeves would be dark enough to obscure the magic floating shotgun (or the shotgun-balancing penis, take your pick LOL), but when they got the...
