    realy, who ever saw "Audition" has to drop their thoughts about this movie, like...what do you think realy happened?? What's the real truth now???? There's something wrong with that girl...but....what's the reality? The hotel room? Or the torture at home???

    i am a big KITANO fan, too. i admire him for "zatoichi"- directing and acitng BLIND - how ill is that?!

    i also saw dead or alive but i am not much aquainted with miikes work. i heard he made a good remake of "graveyard of honour".

    and the classic - SEVEN SAMURAI. the movie???!!!!

    i also saw "pornostar" which wasnt that good but crazy.

    Never heard of that "Porno Star" move But yeah Seven Samuraï is classic.

    Yesterday I saw another Miike Takashi movie "One Missed Call" VERY good movie, kinda in the genre of The Ring and The Grudge but damn man, this was one scary ass movie, wonder when them Americans are gonna make remake of that.........

    Yeah I really love this movie. Very poetic, very calm... Reminds me "Sonatine" of the master Kitano.
    Miike is a crazy man. A lot of movies (60 in 10 years) but a lot of trash shit.
    BUT you can find very nice movie in this filmography: dead or alive trilogy, audition, visitor Q, rainy dogs.... Strange director no doubt.

    Yeah Versus is nice, I just got myself another movie of the same director Ryuhei Kitamura, "AZUMI", damn, this movie was GREAT, I loved every single second of it, never bored me one bit. Everybody must see this great Samuraï flick based on the Azumi comic.

    i got a few jap films on dvd

    seven samurai - best film ever
    ran - another akir kurasawa classic
    versus - dope action
    ichi the killer - mad psychological, alot of commentary on japanese culture
    shogun assassin - decent slasher movie
    azumi - similair to versus with a female lead

    i got a few anime, akira, ninja scroll, ichi the killer, samurai x both of them

    think thats it....

    Yeah, Azumi is great, I loved it. You gotta get Kagemusha man, another great Kurosawa flick.

    word, same here.. i haven't seen the first one though, can't find it anywhere.
    did you noticed too, that almost every japanese movie has a kinda puzzling ending? yanno, for you to wonder about when it's over..

    Very true, I watched Takashi Miike's "Audition" some days ago, and the movie starts out very normal, even a bit romantic, but after an hour it turns into a Psycho-Thriller, and the plot??? Well, that's for us to foind out....just like in "Dead Or Alive" what kind of an ending was that???

    But "Battle Royal" finishes quite god.
