Review of Takashi Miike's Izo

Don't know if I should've posted this in the Int'l DVD forum but I figure since this film just came out in Japan, I might as well post it here...

Looks badass to me!!!

The trailer for this is amazing. I'm excited for this one.

Miike has another movie coming out called Three Monster and it was co-directed by Park Chan-Wook, Fruit Chan and Takashi Miike. I'm thinking it's like 3 different short movies in 3 different languages etc... they did the same thing a few years ago and called it Three also. Anyway, this one has much better directors and I anticipate it being kickass.

Another one I'm looking forward to is A Taste of Tea by Katsuhito Ishii.

Here's some links:

Trailer to Three Monster - - I think it's just the Korean section of the 3-part film.

I'm so freakin' psyched for Izo. I don't even have the words.

Looks good...With the music in the background, it reminded me of an old Ministry or Skinny Puppy video...

I saw that trailer in a Miike thread floating around here. I hope it'll play close by, otherwise I'll have to wait for the DVD. Either way, I can't wait to see it.

I had never heard of this guy until a few weeks ago when a small theatre in San Francisco was going to be doing a slumber party all night film festival of this guy.
I read the synopsises and they sounded way out there.

I would like to see one.
