A horrific tale about the mysteries of unseen boundaries. Whatever you do, don't watch it with the person you love. It gets rather awkward. [Full review in Spanish].

The film is a brutal examination of social isolation and malaise, and the gulf that often exists between men and women.

A divine and delicious slice of Asian horror that is worthy of its status as an iconic piece of not just Asian horror or J-horror, or even horror as a whole, but as an iconic piece of cinema.

Takashi Miike's startling blend of gentle family melodrama and graphic horror is easy to either admire or hate, but impossible to ignore.

But it's one man's pursuit of one woman who turns out to be so much more of his crazed counterpart than he could have ever feared, which makes Audition so petrifying.

With escalating unease and a switch and bait that Hitchcock would be proud of, Audition culminates in its infamously disturbing dnouement.

If you can stomach it, this profoundly moving film will leave you dazed.

Whether reading Audition as a portrait of coming to terms with grief, a feminist revenge tale, or a graphic exploration of romantic attachment and idealism, it remains a terrifying film.

An extremely disturbing and violent psychological thriller from the gifted Japanese director Takashi Miike, which will linger in memory long after you see the film.

It's Japanese provocateur Takashi Miike's best film - a mordant spin on "Little Red Riding Hood" with sexist expectations as the wolf on which the tables are turned. Its "kiri, kiri" refrain also is the Zeroes' answer to "Is it safe?" from "Marathon Man."

I was offended, I was shocked, and I was stunned.

Will get under your skin and stay there for many days.

(The) disturbed and disturbing psycho-horror nightmare begins as a gentle romance based on a lie and then shoots into the Twilight Zone of obsession, sadism, and mutilation.
