Movie Reviews

Miike's more straight forward work
M. James | balwinsville,NY USA | 01/28/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The first film in this collection does follow in the vein of dead or alive and ichi the killer in its subversive, twisting craziness. However, rainy dog, is much more conventional character study, and far less extreme than the majority of Miike's work. This film is beautiful and leisurely paced, using the literary device of pathetic falicy, where the external rain of the environment parallels the emotional states of its central characters. Ley lines is harder hitting with its look at racial bigotry, through its use of sex and violence. All three films are of his best caliber work and solidify the character's feelings of alienation by their own systems (governmental,yakuza/organized crime,family,racial circles)."
