Movie Review: Gozu - 2003

Miike opens a big can of WTF

IMDB I watched Audition and Dead or Alive before watching Gozu, so I was familiar with Takashi Miike's weird visions. Or so I thought, because Gozu is so extra strange that I couldn't really figure out what was going on. But then again, maybe that's the whole point of it? Eventually, I just leaned back and enjoyed the show. Which is gross at times but also hilarious.
To find out if this movie is for you, just watch the first few minutes. If you feel appalled, you might want to skip this movie (as well as other Miike movies). If the opening makes you chuckle a bit, give the movie a try. It's a strange but highly entertaining ride.

Rating: 7 out of 10 milk bottles.
