Reviews

More outrageous and deranged fare from Japanese director Miike Takashi, featuring everything from incest, sodomy and necrophilia to a lactating mother who breastfeeds her husband and adult daughter. Failed reporter Kiyoshi Yamazaki (Kenichi Endo) visits a brothel to make a documentary about debauched youths, and is surprised to encounter his estranged daughter who has become a prostitute. He then meets a stranger, 'Q', and invites him back to his home to meet the rest of his staggeringly dysfunctional family. 'Q' embarks on a mission to teach each family member a lesson they'll never forget.

Takashi Miike is a hugely talented independent Japanese film director who shot to fame in Japan with Shinjuku Triad Society in 1995 and then to international recognition with Audition (1999). Since then he has been making films at a phenomenal rate. Between 1999 and 2001 he pumped out three a year. After that he has slowed down to just the two(!). Visitor Q is one of the three made in 2000 and remains possibly his most organized, most sustained effort to date. It's actually Part 6 of the Love Cinema series in which young independent Japanese directors made straight to video films which had only a brief run in the tiny Shimokitazawa cinema in Tokyo. The films are shot on Digital Video (DV) and are made on a peanut budget. This means the camera is ultra-mobile and there is an excess of low-lit scenes. Also (because of more relaxed censorship regulations on straight to video releases) there is an emphasis on extreme sex and violence. Miike certainly makes the most of this as he gleefully breaks all the taboos in the book with his depiction of the ultimate dysfunctional nuclear family. Split into sections entitled, 'Have you ever done it with your Dad?', 'Have you ever been hit on the head?' and 'Have you ever hit your Mum?', the narrative features incest, domestic violence, drug addiction, murder, rape, the discovery of lactation as a new sexual fetish, necrophilia, and well, everything else that you and I might consider nasty.

Actually what Miike (with writer Haru Eda) has done is look at the small headlines of Japanese newpapers and write large the nagging issues that have been bugging Japanese society for many years. Living in Japan as I do I can tell you that the exaggeration in this movie is only slight when comparing it to the headlines of the day.

Format: DVD
A disgraced reporter (disgraced because during some field work a gang took his microphone and put it somewhwere...uncomfortable, and the whole thing was caught on film) is looking for a new story in the hopes of getting accepted as a credible reporter.
His first attempt sees him at a brothel where he meets a teenage prostitute that just happens to be his daughter and I'm not going to go into detail about what happens but the first subtitle to appear on screen is 'have you ever done it with your dad?' so you can probably guess the outcome.
He then decides to do a report on his son who is being bullied and rather than help his son out, he just films him getting beaten up and humiliated.
He also has other problems at home as the son beats his mother for things like, buying the wrong toothbrush and the mum is prostituting herself to feed her heroin addiction.
Into this unusual family arrives a mysterious visitor who introduces himself via a rock to the head.

The thing you probably won't get from what I've written so far is how funny this film is. Obviously, you will need a slightly twisted sense of humour but I found this to be a really entertaining and often hilarious movie.
There is so much crazy stuff going on from the mysterious visitor teaching the reporters wife how to lactate breast milk to such an extreme that he has to sit under an umbrella to a necrophilia scene in which someone gets a little...stuck...thanks to rigor mortis.

If you want something that's weird yet funny this is one to look out for as Takashi Miike delivers the goods once again.

Format: DVD
Being described as deranged makes me interested in a movie, though often I am let down. This movie is the real thing, perhaps the most outrageous movie ever made. Beginning with unnatural sex and continuing with a catalogue of unparalled perversity, Visitor Q will have you watching or turning away in disbelief. A documentary maker and his dysfunctional family interact in increasingly bizarre ways. The films follows the family members through violence to full psychotic breakdown. The narrative is perhaps not the main thing, it is an accumulation of shocking moments, that is filmed in realistic intensity on digital video. Be warned, this may be too much for some viewers, though recommended for the broadminded and fans of extreme asian cinema.

I decided to write this review to redress the balance - I feel that if you can look beyond the shocking content & sheer bizarreness, then this is a film with an interesting message. Thing is, the content really is shocking - I saw the uncut versions of Ichi The Killer & Audition before watching this, so like to think I have a fairly strong stomach & while this is nowhere near as bloody as those films, it does portray plenty of, uh, questionable activities in a graphic way.

Visitor Q refers to an enigmatic stranger who moves in with a 'conventional' Japanese family which is falling apart due to the clashes between their societies' traditional, patriarchal family values & those of the post-war, Westernised world. The stranger seems to want to drive them apart & generally spread chaos but instead the family ties are re-knotted stronger than ever before despite (or in some instances 'because of') prostitution, violence, necrophilia and, well... 'lactation' seems the easiest way to describe it, to form a stronger, matriarchal family unit.

To give you a rough idea of what to expect, the opening scene consists of the journalist father trying to hold onto his job by creating controversial documentary footage. With that in mind, he goes to a brothel at which his runaway teenage daughter is working & films himself having sex with her. However, he is wholly inadequate to that - or any - task & she openly mocks him, memorably calling him "speedy man" in broken English.
