Everyone classifies it as horror but i felt more like a suspense film more than anything else. not really scary either. just a lil gross towards the end.

Just saw Gozu tonight. I've heard it called the Japanese Eraserhead, and while it isn't nearly as good as Eraserhead, I can dig that comparison.

Dude crawling out of vagina scene is crazy.

Netflix doesn't have it streaming, and my DVD queue is long as hell right now, but I might get to it.

Izo is infinitely more fucked up/surreal than Gozu. If I had to rank, I'd say:

1. Izo
2. Ichi
3. Gozu
4. Audition

But they're all fantastic.

Audition is definitely streaming, as is Ichi.

My friend let me borrow a bootlegged version when I was in the dorms. After I watched it, I was just like "WHAT THE FUCK?" and I went online to look up just exactly wtf was going on and there are tons of sites devoted to the film and its symbolism and stuff.

Yeah, I'm sorta obsessed with learning all about David Lynch movies, and I can see how people would feel the same about Miike movies. But I do have a fair amount of bias for American and European movies over Asian ones. Not saying it's right, but it's just my taste. Give me every David Lynch movie over Gozu, as interesting as it was.
