Miike also has a lighter side, but so far I have enjoyed all of his films that I've seen. If you liked the Dead or Alive Trilogy, you definitely need to check out Ichi the Killer. I am in the process of creating a featured director section for Takashi Miike at Rain City Video...so far, I'm only missing a few titles. Also check out Gozu and Visitor Q, which are pretty fucked-up films. Miike certainly merits his own section, and I think he'll get the top shelf for a few weeks. Anyone who finds themselves in the Ballard area should come check it out if Pat's comments intrigued you at all.


At the moment I've only seen the two I've mentioned, but I'm intrigued enough to see more. I also rented Dolls by Takeshi Kitano and will write up a reivew later.


So when you rent movies now (DVDs?), they come with English subtitles?

That's an advantage I didn't have 10 years ago.


I've heard that some of them do, but all of the DVDs/videotapes I refer to unless otherwise specified (ordered from Amazon.com) are Japanese only, so I do my best, then check summaries on the internet. This film was actually watched on VHS without subtitles as was Dolls.
