ridiculous by liversounds April 21, 2006 - 1:05 PM PDT
this movie is pure crap... one example: the scene where the dialogue is replaced by musac and time/progress are shown with made-for-tv fade-outs and blending... is there really this much extra film out there? miike strays so far from his gift that there is no way im watching the whole movie... intolerable...
