Was this movie and old boy that got me into foreign horror, especially Asian horror. Like all Miike movies, it’s a slow toaster, but it’s worth every second!
A perfect slow burn. Starts out as a rom-com, shifts to a mystery, then becomes a very surreal body horror film.
The first 132 minutes are basically a soap opera. The end is mediocre gore. At least the story is slightly better than Ichi. How is this and Ichi held in such high regard?
Not what I expected from Takashi Miike. Overall I guess it wasn't horrible to watch but it is definitely not worth the hype it's received.
Well done story and does the novel justice. The quick tcjsmge
