Cult auteur Sogo Ishii is back with a follow up to his mindblowing "Electric Dragon 80,000 V." "Dead End Run" is made up of three short films, all of which contain his signature manic visual style. The theme that ties the three parts together is that of the running man who finds himself in a dead-end alley.
Part One depicts a man pursued by a woman who turns out to be a little bit more than he bargained for. Part Two, starring the always brilliant Nagase Masatoshi, tells the story of a man cornered by a deadly hitman. Part Three features Asano Tadanobu being chased by police to a rooftop, where he encounters a woman on the brink of suicide.
