Gozu takes you on a very strange psychosexual journey, which is all the more disturbing because it takes place in completely ordinary surroundings...

Many times it's just a rambling and incoherent mess without a point in sight...
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

Beat's back, with another Yakuza flick under his (black?) belt.
Full Review | Original Score: B
August 4, 2005
Miike has a knack for tapping into deep-seated cultural anxieties-- particularly male sexual anxiety--that few filmmakers can match.

Anyone in the mood for a gender-bending yakuza comedy/horror film and who doesn't mind seeing a lot of bodily fluids spewing onto the screen ought to give Gozu a whirl.

Takashi Miike is one sick puppy. Anyone who has seen his films understands ... All the same, Miike is an astonishing, prolific filmmaker
October 28, 2004
How refreshing it is to see a movie, even an imperfect one, that is completely unpredictable and astonishingly bizarre.

Starts off making almost no sense and becomes less and less logical the longer it plays.

An undisciplined mess.

... prime evidence in the argument that gonzo gangster movie maverick Takashi Miike is a major director goofing on minor works.

Plays like the rantings of a madman, but a pretty entertaining madman.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

For Miike freaks only (and you know who you are). Everyone else: Stay far, far away.

I'm not sure what it really is about, but it's one hell of a ride.

September 16, 2004
A wild surrealism that brings to mind both the rigorous weirdness of David Lynch and the twisted dark comedy of Luis Bunuel

Gozu is freakin' awesome.
September 10, 2004
There is something compelling about the way this film sneakily taps into our collective psychosexual fantasies.

Makes little sense on paper. As a film, however, it somehow feels richly, hilariously real, even -- at its most bizarre -- familiar.
September 10, 2004
I don't think this is quite the film with which to begin a Miike investigation.
September 9, 2004
The absurdist staging suggests a kind of magic surrealism; Miike literally turns homosexual panic inside out.

It's unflinchingly horrible, but it's also incredibly funny.
