Nippon horror from Japan’s legendary grindhouse auteur Miike, who has pounded out over seventy theatrical, video, and TV productions since his debut in 1991. Prolific, provocative, and probably not appropriate for anyone.
Gozu has been called a J-horror version of Mullholland Dr., a twisted conflation of Yakuza mystery, Lynchian comic-horror, Japanese folklore, with lots of lactating. ”…a straight-to-video Japanese release that snuck into Cannes last year and has been leaving a trail of damp, crusty stains on the festival circuit since, it is likely his most cunning and controlled work since the sex-panic Venus flytrap Audition.” -Dennis Lim

In Visitor Q, his indescribably perverse take on the family drama, a deranged dad sets out to make a documentary on the exploits of his seriously damaged family. “The scandalous pinnacle of Miike’s extreme cinema canon.” -Nick Schager, Lessons of Darkness
