"Deeper, deeper..."

Take notes, Eli Roth.

Too calculating and surgical to be one of the most insane movies ever, although it sent chills shooting through my whole body all the same.

Miike very very cleverly opens the film as if it's going to be a silly romantic dramedy and save for a few bizarrely creepy snippets around the 40 minute mark, it very well could fool someone into thinking that's what they're watching. That would be the biggest miscalculation of their life. You'll wish it was a dream.

You can't treat a person, man or woman, like a dog. Although with some handy-dandy piano wire and a big burlap sack you can certainly make an attempt.
