Takashi Miike's Dead or Alive (犯罪者) trilogy at Melwood Screening Room, August 31 - September 3.

The three films comprising the Japanese Dead or Alive series---DEAD OR ALIVE 犯罪者, DEAD OR ALIVE 2 逃亡者, and DEAD OR ALIVE FINAL---will play at the Melwood Screening Room in Oakland from August 31 to September 3. Pittsburgh Filmmakers summarzies:
Anything can happen in a Takashi Miike film. Beginning with an explosive, six-minute montage of sex, drugs and violence -- and ending with a phallus-headed battle robot taking flight -- Miike's unforgettable DEAD OR ALIVE trilogy (1999-2002) features many of the prolific director’s most outrageous moments alongside some of his most dramatically moving scenes starring the popular duo Show Aikawa and Riki Takeuchi.
Tickets and showtime information is available on the Pittsburgh Filmmakers website. A $15 ticket is available for the entire trilogy. The Melwood Screening Room is located at 477 Melwood Ave. (map).
