Dead End Run

Synopsis: Dead End Run is de eerste film van Ishii sinds het overweldigende Electric Dragon 80.000 V (vertoond op het festival in 2001), waar sommige argelozen nog altijd met verbaasde oren aan kunnen terugdenken en anderen met een niet eenvoudig te plaatsen gevoel van euforie. Ishii gaat voort op de ingeslagen weg. Dead End Run bestaat eigenlijk uit drie korte films. In het eerste deel zien we een man (Iseya Yusuke, de regisseur van Kakuto) die achtervolgd wordt door een vrouwelijke robot met een voorliefde voor musical liedjes. In deel twee draait de achtervolging om Nagase Masatoshi (bekend als de toerist uit Clara Law's Autumn Moon, maar ook al te zien in Gojoe en Electric Dragon), die door een huurmoordenaar in dezelfde doodlopende steeg gedreven wordt (vandaar de overkoepelende titel). In deel drie wordt Asano Tadanobu achtervolgd door de politie: hij eindigt op een dak waar hij een meisje in gijzeling neemt dat daar was beland om zelfmoord te plegen. Ishii's films combineren de ademlooshe

Are you OK?

Thanks for taking my life


I didn't suffer at all

One blow and I'm in heaven

"We had to meet,

"like this,

"on a night like this"

"It was such a boring evening,

"I was drinking around

at this late hour,

"on my way home from work,

all alone..."

I was wandering around the city

"But I don't find it strange at all

"Even a tragic meeting like this

"isn't a coincidence at all

"You and I,

"we were destined to meet

right now, like this

"To see our last dream together

"Just you and I,

"our last dream..."


What's wrong with you?

Why're you singing all of a sudden?

"You're the one I was meant to meet

"at the very end,

"and then part

"We meet, and then I die

"Isn't this the most shortlived

"and bittersweet love story ever?

"Between the curtain rising

and then falling on the act,

"is only a matter of a few minutes

"Would you believe that

"a love so brief would even exist?"


Tragedy, you see,

"has a tendency to turn into

"a romantic drama

"Let me see your face more clearly

"Let's look into our eyes when we talk

"That way,

"we'll see each other's heart better

"We don't have much time,

"before the moon is clouded over

"Our time together

"is short"

Wait a sec!

What're you talking about?

Just speak normally!

"We only have one life to live

"I tried to live it

as preciously as I could

"but something went wrong

along the way"

I just killed you!

How can you talk like that?

I've been living a lie

I've been lying to myself

that I don't feel any pain


I've been lying to myself

that I don't feel any pain

That's your own business

Just go off and die on your own

Why'd you have to come

and show up in my life?

I didn't mean to

Look, I didn't mean to kill you

I know

I beg you, just forgive me!

Keep me warm

I wanted to be with someone


You were just dancing!


C'mon, just once more!

Don't go cold on me!



We've apprehended the suspect

Give it back!

Come back!

Get back here!


He went that way!


He went up! Up!

I'll shoot, dammit!

Don't do anything stupid!

Move back!

Hey, don't come near me!

Move back or I'll shoot her!

Move back to where I can't see you


I'll shoot her for real!

Move back, goddammit!

Hurry, or I'll shoot!

- No reception!

- I'll call, sir

Evacuate civilians and

secure the perimeter!

I'm finished!

Yes, we're trying to

apprehend the suspect

How'd he steal your gun?

Because you weren't paying attention!

Don't worry, he doesn't have

the guts to pull the trigger

Hey you! You know what you're doing?

Let the girl go!

Shut up or I'll shoot her!

Calm down! It's not too late

Don't make me do it

If she gets shot, it's your fault!

- You!

- Don't upset him!

Damn, what do I do now?

I haven't thought of anything

A hostage! Jesus, what a drag...

What am I gonna do about you now?

Copy that!

Our back up's here, sir

Got it

Tell them not to upset him

The suspect's excited,

so please don't upset him

I know! I'm supposed to demand

something, like a helicopter

Wait, I get airsick easily

Can't believe this is happening to me

Sh*t, I'm probably finished

Hey, how come I'm the only one

talking here? Say something

A cold one, aren't you?

You're no fun

Can you see with that?

Sure, I cheated on exams with this

So what do you see?

Hey, how about this?

Damn, I wanna pull the trigger

My finger's gonna move by itself
