Rated 5 out of 5 by from Miike Madness! When I first purchased this fine book many years ago I quickly read the first chapter and the sections on the films I'd already seen. I then put it down figuring I would read the rest once I've seen the rest of Miike's work. Well, with the publication of Re-Agitator I figure I'm close enough. And wow, what a fantastic read. Mes goes deep into Miike's films where I'm sure even if Miike was to read some of his analysis he'd say, "Damn, I hadn't thought of that". I was particularly impressed with Mes's dissection of Miike's use of violence in Ichi the Killer and the recurring themes in all Miike's work (even where you don't expect it). The publication of Miike's production diary on Ichi the Killer is indespensable as well. A must read for Miike fans.
