    Fantasia Review: Takashi Miike's Enjoyably Wacky 'The Mole Song – Undercover Agent Reiji'

    Takashi Miike works at a rate that is as prolific as it is uneven, usually directing multiple movies per year, in a wide range of styles from comedies to family films to straight ahead police procedurals (like the dreadful Cannes Competition entry "Shield Of Straw"). And so, it's never quite certain...

    Takashi Miike's 'Audition' Getting Remake From Producer Of 'Terminator 2,' 'Basic Instinct ' & 'Showgirls'

    Last year we listed our 5 Best & 5 Worst Horror Movie Remakes, and noted that Takashi Miike's "Audition" had "mercifully avoided the remake treatment." We spoke too soon. One of the handful of early films that put the filmmaker on the radar of genre enthusiasts, "Audition" is now going down the rema...

Miike is currently in productio...

    Tom Hardy & Takashi Miike Reportedly Exit Yakuza Flick 'The Outsider'

    It seems that, try as it might, "The Outsider" is aiming to pair up hotshot directors and actors, but isn't able to make them stick. Back in 2012, Daniel Espinosa ("Safe House," "Easy Money") and Michael Fassbender were lined up for the movie, but when that didn't happen, an even more promising comb...

    Watch: First Teaser Trailer For Takashi Miike’s 'Mogura no Uta' Is Typically Bonkers

    After walking into the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year with his utterly awful thriller/police procedural "Shield Of Straw" (our review), it was a reminder that for all of the Japanese auteur's frenetic, groundbreaking films, he has just as many that are forgettable stinkers. The hit to miss r...

    So, Japanese filmmaker and cult fave Takashi Miike, after more than 60 features that have included over-the-edge stuff like "Ichi The Killer," "Visitor Q," "Audition," "Gozu" and more (and by more, we mean that he's done everything from bloodbath gangster flicks to mainstream comedies to musicals to...
