Miike's 'wild east' take on the western genre is a colourfully violent stand-off of pastiche, politics and punk.

Sukiyaki Western Django is a singular work of art that both celebrates those disjointed parts and synthesizes them into a strangely cohesive %u2013 and more amazingly, unique whole.

November 10, 2008
Clever costuming and production design set off an intriguingly off-kilter vision of a tiny western town in a "Nevada" out in the Japanese desert.

Miike knows how to film cartoonish violence with style, and the sillier the movie becomes in its mayhem, the harder it is to turn away from.

September 12, 2008
Japanese spaghetti Western that's both faithful to its Italian antecedents and way out on its own wacky wavelength.
September 12, 2008
A remarkably inventive yet referential Eastern Western, full of action, cinematic references, pop-cowboy lingo, bloody haute costuming, two warring clans and one carnage-inducing Gatling gun.

The flick's a lot of sound and fury and dynamite that signifies nothing while paying tribute to everything

You haven't lived until you've heard a Japanese actor use the phrase 'Whistling Dixie' in a sentence

More action, gun fights and swords fail to make this a better film than the spaghetti westerns that came before. Tarantino is great but his small part is too little to lift this Eastern oater much above average.

September 2, 2008
It's a perfect execution of its genres and offers enough of a gimmick to maintain interest. Unfortunately, Sukiyaki never rises above its roots and, strangely enough, doesn't actually offer up anything new.

Japanese suspense maestro Takashi Miike pays homage to the spaghetti western genre with a story born of Sergio Leone's "A Fistful of Dollars," which was originally inspired by Akira Kurosawa's "Yojimbo."

Utterly deranged.

It is, of course, a must for Miike's legions of fans, of which I am one. It also should serve as a way for mainstream audiences to become acquainted with Miike.

Sukiyaki Western Django is comfort food garnished with aural and ocular delights. It's often quite moving, as well; though not the most nutritious repast, few will describe it as forgettable.

August 29, 2008
A loving and lurid pastiche of the spaghetti westerns that were themselves lurid pastiches of classic Hollywood cowboy pictures.

Sukiyaki Western Django is Sergio Leone on LSD. It's every '60s/'70s revisionist western riff supersaturated in stylized bombast and a purposed perversion of the motion picture mannerism.

Far and away the finest section is the final showdown, smoothly and swiftly shot with excessive violence and gore.
