What are your opinions of Takashi Miike and the films he makes?

Personally, I see him in the top 5 active directors today....

A truely wondeful, fresh film maker bound by no constraints , not scared to tackle any issue.
Extremely clever, able to bring the most disturbing aspects of the human character to the screen in a fresh and funny way.... truely the director the likes of tarantino wish to be ,but will allways fall short of.

World cinema's most daring and dangerous cinematic visionary

A true genius in a world of pretenders!!

My fav Miike films:
Koroshiya 1
Bizita Q
Hyôryuu-gai
Odishon
Gokudô sengokushi: Fudô
