Takashi Miike (1960 - present) is a highly prolific and controversial Japanese filmmaker. He has directed over seventy theatrical, video, and television productions since his debut in 1991. His films range from violent and bizarre to dramatic and family-friendly. He has since gained a strong cult following in the West that is growing with the increase in DVD releases of his works.
Miike has garnered international notoriety for depicting shocking scenes of extreme violence and sexual perversions. Many of his films contain graphic and lurid bloodshed, often portrayed in an over-the-top, cartoonish manner. Much of his work depicts the activities of criminals (especially yakuza) or concern themselves with non-Japanese living in Japan. He is known for his black sense of humor and for pushing the boundaries of censorship as far as they will go. (x)
Got my AS results today. Pretty damn pleased with my ABBB, (especially considering I had the worst teachers ever for English and film) however it really makes you realise your college is a shithole when that’s considered exceptionally good.

You’ll find me as the time-bomb
As the last great stand in this history
When all our roads have been traveled
And all have come to a most bitter end
Today I thaw
