    WTFffffffff. That looks like a Shaw Bros movie directed by Robert Rodriguez. Or Cronenberg’s THE BROOD re-imagined by Miike. Dude’s some kind of mad scientist (Miike that is).

  2. J says:

    In an interview included on the DVD, Miike described ’13 Assassins’ as “a family film.” I look forward to his description of this one.

  3. Tofu says:

    Knowing Miike, this will play straight as a kids film for 70 minutes, and then the last 10 will be an uncomfortable mature turn filled with sadism & death.

    Even The Great Yokai War started out a bit freaky and Yatterman had some S&M vibes, just from the source material.

    I’ve always found Miike to be a (mostly) complete hack with only 1 or 2 good films to his filmography. Robert Rodriquez is a perfect analogy.

    He’s a prime example of fanboys putting junk on a pedestal just because it’s from someplace exotic. If this shit was from Hollywood people would be giving it as much attention as Bob Clark’s Baby Geniuses.

“It was always a crisis, but we had a great time,” James Schamus said, grinning. “Now I know how much fun directing is. I didn’t know. No one told me.”

“Athina Rachel Tsangari looks at men as if they are creatures from one of the wildlife documentaries she referred to in her poignant debut Attenberg. She is part of a undeclared new school of cinema, which might be called ‘The Behaviouralists’. So far there is only one other member of this school, Yorgos Lanthimos, whom she has previously collaborated with. He recently made The Lobster which sees Colin Farrell play a man who chooses a lobster as the animal he must turn into if he loses a bizarre relationship game in a hotel-cum-sanitorium. Games, systems and rules are essential for the Behaviouralists yet always in flux.”
