Miike is without a doubt, one of, if not the most original directors around today. His volume of work is immense and some of his works are quite dense. Never one to shy away from taboo subjects and extreme violence, Miike has gathered a massive cult following and I believe this is fantastic.
This movie again showcases a bit more of his weird and artistic side with the multi layered language usage and camera angles and techniques. Chickens, Spiders, Ping Pong…Miike creates some more of his truly unique but creative ideas. For a completionist or those looking to just get into Miike…this is a perfect start.
