This is fantastic
One of Miike's best and just one kf the all time classics. too bad I hear its leaving shudder soon.
It’s a lot more restrained than most Takashi Miike movies, but there are some serious flaws. Adding a huge tragic backstory to the woman does nothing for the character, and picking a woman that is… so unconventional in looks is a bizarre choice. Perhaps it’s due to a cultural difference but she was just uncomfortable to watch any time she was on screen. Even the final scene was off putting, not because of the gore, but because because of her acting and looks.
awesome movie , just how i like it more gore the better.
