Takashi Mi­ike, 1999

The very finest from pro­lific di­rec­tor Takashi Mi­ike is part melo­drama, gen­der study, and tor­ture porn. A lonely wi­d­ower in­vents a fake movie in or­der to screen po­ten­tial new wives, where he meets docile but dam­aged Asami. Things don’t end well. Want more Mi­ike? Try zom­bie mu­si­cal The Hap­pi­ness Of The Katakuris, ul­tra vi­o­lent Ichi The Killer and pervy necro- fam­ily drama Vis­i­tor Q.
