Ep. 95 — AUDITION (1999)
This week on the show, we're finally getting around to talking about a film from one of cult cinema's most notorious and prolific directors.
Takashi Miike's AUDITION was the film that introduced most western audiences to the auteur's work, and remains his most well-known film. But for fans of the filmmaker, it remains an outlier in his filmography, showing uncharacteristic restraint (until it doesn't).
Does its place in the pantheon of cult cinema warrant its entry into the Psychotronic Hall of Fame? We'll make our arguments on the show, then the voting is up to you!
