is it worse than Takashi Miike's Ichi the Killer?

i have yet to see Ichi the Killer although miike is a relatively notorious director
one time it happened at the Venice Film Festival where Audition/Odishon was screened and one woman was so disgusted with the torture scene that she stood up and yelled at miike "You're evil!"

"Ichi" is not for person's with weak stomaches, it has torture, sadism, masochism, rape, murder, dismemberment and one bad mama jamma named Kakihara that for all his faults is still one cool cat.  *chl

the most interesting fact about the film that I can use to keep it in perspective is the All of the Semen in the Film is Real...and the Director's.       Happy viewing.

Been watching a J-Drama from 2006 called Kurosagi about a conman that swindles other conmen in order to get revenge for his family. Really good stuff with some fascinating character relationships.

I'm really surprised at just how much C,K and J-Drama is getting translated these days, Some of it is really quality stuff like Trick and Sexy Voice & Robo. Of course some it is schlock like Fuma No Kojiro...

Hollywood remaking Fuma No Kojiro could only help it. It kills me because the anime for it is soooo much better despite its goofy premise (rival High Schools use NINJAS to counteract each other... of course this is based on a manga by Masami "Saint Seiya" Kurumada so it all devolves into giant superpowered teens battling it out.

Yeah... I really love the Japanese version of Ring as it was such a great horror movie because of the mood it set. The US version, having Sadoko coming out of the TV was just so damn stupid and cheezy as opposed to the Japanese version where leaving it to the viewer's imagination is way more frightening and even more terrifying if you've read Ring, Rasen and Loop... geez what a crazy way to kill people... i.e. infecting the film clip with your smallpox infected DNA and transmitting via visual medium.

i myself watched it and i was like "huh?"
if there is one film festival in the world i wouldn't understand, it would be Cannes

Anyone know where I can find episodes of TRICK?  Preferably with subtitles...

www.tvnihon.com has both the TV series and movie version of Trick as well as a host of other shows (including Akihabara@DEEP and others). Though most of what they sub is toku related they have a healthy stock of JDorama

Deeper into Kurosagi now (all the way to episode 4 out of 11). Episodes 1-3 were set-up and introducing the main players of this 'Grifter who destroys other Grifters' story. Episode 4 moves what promises to be an arc along. Kurosaki tries to swindle a shirosagi that in the end might be a little better than he is at the art of the swindle. Tsurara goes home for Golden Week and dwells on her encounters with Kurosaki while her best friend Yukari tries to fill Kurosaki in on what Tsurara is like, even though Yukari has hinted she wants to get in Kurosaki's pants. Then there is Katsuragi, who seems to be the most manipulative son of a bitch in this tale of manilpulative sons of bitches.

I really am digging this show!

When I initially watch a series and end up liking it I tend to do these crazy marathon viewings. While I'm not tackling Kurosagi with the same vigor I attack most shows (like, say, MAJOR, for example) I have been watching Kurosagi at a rate of 2 episodes a day. For a 45 minutedrama that is 90 minutes out of 16-18 hours of being awake.

I'm down to the last 2 episodes and man has this show been fun. It's almost as good as Akihabara@DEEP and Sexy Voice & ROBO (it is very hard to be as good as the latter, that was an absolutely brilliant and heartbreaking show). I cannot recommend Kurosagi enough to fans of J-Dorama. With that in mind...

http://nhatkyviet.com/2007/04/08/kurosagi-j-drama-yamashita-tomohisa-horikita-maki/

Yup, the link to all 11 episodes. Do not be fooled by the opening animation part, this is not anime, it is a drama. Please, enjoy.

zhang yinou's "raise the red lantern" (starring gong li)

definitely one of the best movies i have seen so far but i was able to see it at a local tv channel here in the Philippines
it was bittersweet at the same time engaging because while the heroine's intention is just to rise out of poverty by being a rich man's concubine (at the same that it's still legal in mainland China), she ended up getting more than the bad things that she's expecting to happen

as always, performance from gong li is still dominant
