Interfilm’s Rageaholic Wraps Photography in Japan

Interfilm’s Rageaholic Wraps Photography in Japan

Principal photography wrapped today on Interfilm’s Rageaholic, from writer/director Yoshiki Takahashi. The picture marks the feature directorial debut of prolific Tokyo-based artist Takahashi, who is widely-known for scripting Sion Sono’s celebrated 2010 blockbuster Cold Fish.

Rageaholic, which is based on a story by Yuki Kobayashi (Death Row Family), stars Yohta Kawase, model Aya Saiki, Ryuju Kobayashi (August In Tokyo), and Manzô Shinra (Ichi The Killer). It is produced by Kazuto Morita, Yukihisa Higami, Kazunori Shibasaki, and Takehiko Ito.

Rageaholic follows Yakuza-busting police officer Fukama (Kawase), who, after allowing his overly-violent nature to get the better of him, botches an arrest and leaves several bodies in his wake. Disgraced and sent to America for psychotherapy, he returns to Japan years later to discover that the town he once cleaned up is now so clean that it has literally become sanitized – with death as punishment for those who do not conform.
