Fucking amazing. This and Audition are the only two Miike films I've seen so far,and this one runs circles around Audition. Its my personal favorite Asian film.

Yeah, that's too bad the old thread got deleted, there was definately some great discussions in there. Either way Gozu is one of two things, either the strangest and most metaphorical and Lynchian Miike flick there is, or the biggest insisde joke and jab at film critics and fanboys Miike ever played. Either way he's pretty damn talented.

I remember that essay you provided really helped me come to appreciate this movie far more than I had after the first viewing. I hated it the first time I sat through it, then slowly came to love it. A truly unique cinematic experience. One crazy fucked up movie that's either totally nonsensical or very metaphoric of a sexual journey of self discovery that pokes fun of Japanese gangster films.

Gozu is a masterpiece.

One of Miike's best films.

I started it but unfortunately didn't get to finish it. From what I saw it was well directed, well written, funny as hell, and absolutely crazy. I hear the endings even crazier.
