this series is fundamentally the japanese "Twin Peaks". Miike has long been heralded the eastern David Lynch and nowhere is it more evident than in this mini-series following the surreal, dream-like,nightmarish investigations of the central cop who at his most street level position is indeed the agent cooper of this saga. As he and his naive protoge get further and further embroiled in the search for the modus operandi of the killer they encounter weird sects and all manner of apocalyptic scenarios. Alongside their adventures we are also drawn in to another detectives search for his real identity and a body hopping mischevious nemesis who may or may not be his missing identity and......oh i dont know, to be quite honest its all a beautiful mind warping mess. Just sit back and enjoy the organised chaos that is MPD PSYHO and sail away on the hypnotic theme tune that permeates the series from some distant shore. Miike at his most enigmatic.
