Another surreal and outré film by maverick Japanese director Takashi Miike. When senior yakuza Ozaki (Sho Aikawa) starts to behave in an increasingly peculiar manner, his superiors start getting worried, and order Ozaki's immediate underling Minami (Hideki Sone) to get rid of him. On the way to the yakuza disposal dump, Minami, nervous about the job ahead of him, hits the brakes too hard and kills Ozaki completely by accident. After he stops to find a telephone to report the incident to his boss, he returns to the car to find that Ozaki's body has vanished. So begins a desperate and increasingly un-hinged search that takes in a bizarre array of eccentric and deranged suburbanites, each of whom seems to reflect some weird, dark aspect of Minami's complex and troubled personality.

It starts quite funny with talk of the Yakuza attack dog but it's the kind of black humour that has you laughing and also quite disturbed. I could not recommend this film to the feint of heart although it is not all blood and guts like, say, Ichi the Killer. The story is quite simplistic and in fact for the most part completely absent, the film's deranged and incredibly unsettling events leave the plot so far behind it becomes obsolete. This does not affect the overall quality of the film nor does it begin to feel loose or pointless. The film traps you in an adventure and lures you into a world that both shocks you and makes you insanely interested. Never before have I been able to describe watching a film as: "an experience" but that is exactly what Gozu was for me.
I do feel however that Gozu feels less like a feature film. It doesn't have the feel of a large, dramatic project and its low budget does leave it feeling ever so slightly less professional than Miike's other works like `Audition' or `Ichi the Killer'. This presents the film with a feeling much more, for lack of better words: `personal' than others, which suits Gozu just fine. The film moves quite slowly with little intense action, bar the heart-stopping insane events dotted throughout, and thus Gozu is quite hard to watch twice.Read more ›
This is, quite simply, a master class in surrealism. What starts out as a normal Japanese yakuza film takes a sharp turn into what i can only describe as madness. From Yakuza Attack Dogs to a cow headed man to an utterly insane birth sequence this film has got it all!!
If you like your films weird then this is for you.
The tension and intrigue builds nicely throughout, aided by an atmospheric and very subtle score, which lends a certain unease to the film, and is less a typical musical score and more an amalgamation of almost imperceptible drones and uneasy tones that help unsettle the viewer without being overtly obvious. Alongside this, are the perhaps more obviously disconcerting characters that shadow the central protagonist in the search for his yakuza brother. Their bewildering personalities, dialogue, and distinctly local (very much in The League Of Gentlemen sense of the word) habits, underpin much of the strangeness and unease that builds to the denouement. Their behaviour is ultimately summarised by their very own semi-frequent statement of "you're not from Nagoya are you?", which although it evokes an almost horror cliché or spoof, is actually delivered well and effectively underlines the oddness of these characters.Read more ›

Keeps you glued to the screen not only for the action but also the great soundtrack - all so weird but well worth the watch.Published on 20 Nov. 2013 by Mr. Norman Bright
