Also, the Austin Film Society still has a couple of showings of their Miike films, also at Alamo Downtown -- "Gozu" is tonight, "Fudoh" on 3/29, "Ichi the Killer" on 4/5, and "Visitor Q" on 4/12.

If you liked "Fight Club," but thought it needed more homoerotic bonding and violence, check out "Ichi the Killer." An excellent film; loved every minute of it.

"Visitor Q," on the other hand is perhaps the most disturbing film I've seen. Not for the squeamish.

Just saw Gozu last night. Zowie! What a crazy-ass movie. Kind of slow, full of bizarre dream-logic and semi-catatonic peripheral characters, but it's got an ending that has to be seen to be believed.

I heard about Gozu when it played at SXSW last year, but didn't get to see it. I did start singing "Ladle, ladle, ladle" to myself though :)
