Sukiyaki Western Django

Sukiyaki Western Django

I watched Sukiyaki Western by Takashi Miike the other day. It was typically Miike in that the film was highly original, really well shot, and charismatic, but there was something about the plot line that didn’t quite work. Also, Tarantino was pretty awful in his side-role. Despite the film’s weaknesses, I was totally engrossed. This always happens when I watch Miike films. One of his previous films called ‘Gozu’ was really good too.
