  1. Takashi Miike has directed over 100 films in his life and what is even more interesting about that is that he was not alive during D.W. Griffith, Allan Dawn and John Ford’s era where churning out a bunch of films per year was considered the norm. The early 1990’s is when Miike started filmmaking. Anyway, thanks for dropping by 🙂

  2. Audition is one of about 5 Asian films that I’ve seen. Wow! What a trip! Great movie, but very, very disturbing. It disturbed me like Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer did; like the first time I saw Psycho–I had no idea what I was getting myself into; I was twelve.

  3. As with Audition, John McNaughton’s Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer and Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho are great films that not only disturb you, but stick with you for a lifetime and that is the sign of a great film 🙂 Anyway, thanks for dropping by and keep those comments coming 🙂
