About this title

Synopsis:

Fierce. Nonsensical. Vulgar. Powerful. These are words that could be used to describe Takashi Miike. But without doubt the most essential words are self-assured and clever. - Shinya Tsukamoto Audition. Dead or Alive. Ichi the Killer. Visitor Q. These films have amazed, stunned, delighted and shocked audiences the world over, garnering critical acclaim for their Japanese director: Takashi Miike. Seen as one of the most important filmmakers to emerge in Japan in the last twenty years, Takashi Miike has directed 49 feature films and 3 TV series in the space of 11 years. Many of them still unseen outside Japan, Miike's films are marked by a dazzling visual style, brilliant narrative invention and a willingness to go far beyond accepted boundaries. Agitator - The Cinema of Takashi Miike examines each of these titles in-depth, revealing a provocative but remarkably consistent body of work. Illustrated with hundreds of stills, behind-the-scenes pictures and rare photographs from the director's private collection, this is the first ever study devoted entirely to the work of one of the world's most exciting filmmakers.
