Need some help...

Hey, I need help in finding films like Versus and Sukiyaki Western Django. I am pretty new into foreign films, especially Asian films, but I love crap like this (Over the top stylized violence), but in a way like those first two films I mentioned. Not really into films like Hard Boiled as much. I know they are kinda similar, but if anyone has any suggestions I'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks

Over the Top Only

Katsuhito Ishii:

Party 7
Shark Skin Man and Peach Hip Girl
Taste of Tea (is great but very dissimilar in theme than the others)

Takashi Miike:

List is too long to mention really, but I like ..

Ichi the Killer
Visitor Q
Dead or Alive 1-3

Also, you could track down 2LDK, Survive Style 5+, Death Trance (similar in style as Versus - Director (Yoji) was lead action director of Versus), or Sonny Chiba in the Streetfighter series.
