An amazing movie from an amazing director!
I love this movie a lot. I understand that it's not for everyone, and the fact that it's an intense slow burn makes it a hard watch if you're into the more slash and dash kinda movies, which is fine! This however... is totally the opposite as to what I was expecting from Takashi Miike, having watched Ichi the Killer not too long beforehand. I expected a gore-fest from the moment it began, yet I got just the opposite. Personally I find the buildup towards the ending scenes worth the wait, as the actors do an amazing job at acting authentic. The direction of the movie is also gorgeous, the cinematography is absolutely beautiful. If you don't mind a slow-burn with a real nasty, goosebump inducing ending then give audition a go!
One of the best! Ending is insanity
Such a great movie. The slow burn in the beginning to the hard climax of the film is amazing. Well written and great acting. I definitely would recommend this movie to friends.
Very slow but still very good.
