Gozu (極道恐怖大劇場 牛頭 GOZU, Gokudō kyōfu dai-gekijō: Gozu?, literally: Grand Theatre of Perversion and Fear: Cow’s Head) is a Japanese cult film directed by Takashi Miike. Shot on a low budget, the movie was originally planned for release on DVD but its positive reception at the Cannes Film Festival in May 2003 secured its theatrical release overseas.

Aaaaand you’re welcome for the nightmare.

"Whew … I almost ‘blasted off’ without you."
Does it make you feel better to know that he’s about to come to a  — pardon me — nasty end? (I am so ashamed.)

"I can’t get it up without this. … Oh, baby!"
Now you know what the ladle collection is for.

"Shower?"
"The scent of soap or of me. Which do you prefer?"
Ozaki, now calling herself Sakiko, makes a move on the old man of the Yakuza crew.

"Amore…"
On the way back to the city, Minami and maybe-female-Ozaki stop in a hotel. In the night, Minami hears speech coming from Ozaki’s hoo-ha. I guess that would be a Vagina Monologue, eh?

"…like the first time you masturbated you used photos of dogs mating…"
The woman who claims to be Ozaki tries to convince Minami by telling him close secrets only Ozaki knows.

"Lovely. This is your brother? Here."
Minami finds Ozaki. Sort of. He has been “pressed” in a Yakuza disposal facility. The skin is preserved, and Minami recognizes it. The tattoos, it would seem to me, would be better identification than the penis.

This is just a pretty sunset with the silhouettes of smokestacks and a giant Ferris Wheel. It’s in the movie, I suspect it’s just something Miike saw and said, “Hey, shoot that, it’s pretty.”

Instead of his brother, Minami is visited by Gozu, the mythological guardian of Hell’s gates. Gozu has the head of a cow (not a bull) and the body of a man. And, apparently, tightie-whities.
