Takashi Miike Fest 2011 (#2) Five Random Movies
Takashi Miike's body of work is huge, like a giant house that you go into and has everything in every nook and crannie, even the ones you don't expect like in the bathroom sink or the crawl space or that pink stuffing area in the attic. He's like Fassbinder only if he didn't die and had access to some digital equipment from time to time. His work is all over the place- some of it is great, some of it good, some of it is just okay, a few are downright awful- but that's the joy in it, that you can go through so many works that eventually you'll find one of those movies you cherish for a lifetime (for me it's Happiness of the Katakuris).
