Critic Reviews for Audition (Ôdishon)
This movie, at just under two hours, is a long crawl from inception to climax.
Miike is brilliant at transforming the mundane and familiar ... into something sinister and eerie.
A diabolically adroit piece of filmmaking that goes even further than the films of Italy's excruciatingly macabre Dario Argento.
This brazen shocker is never less than compelling -- even when you feel compelled to shut your eyes.
Audience Reviews for Audition (Ôdishon)
The shifts in tone along the film are completely baffling, as it begins as an unsettling drama, then becomes a romance, and then finally makes it clear that all that was just a weird prelude to a shocking, outrageous and confusing third act that doesn't make much sense.
From the very beginning, before things slide greasily into OMG, there's a creepy ominous feeling. I thought it was cultural differences. "That guy takes a drink in every scene he's in, and none of them look like a drink because he's thirsty..." It's a creepy ominous work.
