The Happiness of the Katakuris - The hills are alive with the sound of screaming

It is a widely little known fact that, despite his reputation for cartoonishly character filled, violent and perverted movies, Takashi Miike is also a creator of children's films and a creator of period movies (as in the corset-cleavage filled movies set in a period of time... not the kind downloadable from Germany). It is a narrower full-size fact... Click to read more "The Happiness of the Katakuris (Katakuri-ke no kôfuku)"

Ichi the Killer - Excessive Violence from Takashi Miike

Ichi the Killer (Koroshiya 1) is a tremendously violent, tremendously twisted and slightly confusing Yakuza movie with the perverse and bizarre storyline that we have come to expect of Takashi Miike. The gore is excessive, the violence is brutal and there is a plethora of peculiar, complex, drug-fuelled characters, once again typical of this legend...

Suicide Club (Suicide Circle) - Well then, goodbye everybody

There is plenty of blood and gore (most of which is in the first five minutes), the usual confusing-to-Westerners storyline and an abundance of cheesy pop music. The movie is f...

Visitor Q - The only thing stranger than this family is... Visitor Q.

If you have seen any Takashi Miike movies then you expect to be shocked. With Visitor Q the controversial Japanese director does not disappoint, not really a horror (although there are some gory moments) this movie is definitely extreme. Takashi Miike really pushes the boundaries of decency with this movie but manages to make a really prominent (if... Click to read more "Visitor Q (Bijitâ Q)"
