Audition ★★★½

Sordid and disturbing work by Takashi Miike in which the filmmaker presents an interesting combination of psychological, dreamlike and gore elements to address issues such as loneliness, abuse and revenge. On another layer, it could also be interpreted as a critique of misogyny in Japanese society that finally finds in Asami a vindictive figure who retaliates against the men who have marked her life. Ōdishon is deceptive, Miike constantly plays with the viewer while slowly weaves a sense of discomfort that lasts for quite some time.
