Hi I want to start a poll of the top 5 Miike films. Not sure how to eventually calculate the results but these are mine:

5. Blues Harp
4. Key Lines
3. Visitor Q
2. Zebra Man
1. Office Worker Kintaro


This list was difficult but I stand firm.

Blues Harp has some incredible editing
Key lines has some amazing acting
Visitor Q is a superior use of video as a medium to propell a theme
Zebra Man is very fresh
office worker is my fav because it's just genious

The best LOOKING one of his that I've seen by far is "The Happiness of the Katakuris." Didn't like the movie, though. Most everything I see on DVD from Japan looks awful, with the pedestal levels being whacked or whatnot, like it came from a Betacam master or something. Yet the stuff of the Tartan label is stellar. Anywho, I loved "Visitor Q" just for the pure shock value, "Audition" and "Ichi" were pretty good, but the cinematography in his movies never really stood out much to me because the content is so engaging I forget about it. I haven't seen the others on your list.

IZO has now jumped to number 1. I forgot about this gem in my previous post and the movie oozes with pure cinematic genious. The cinematography is spellbindingly brilliant.
