NEW TAKASHI MIIKE THRILLER WILL BE “MIIKE AT HIS MOST FUN AND ANARCHIC”





Despite having made over a hundred films, a new movie from Takashi Miike is still something to get excited about in my opinion. There’s been a slightly longer than usual wait since Blade Of The Immortal, but some details of his latest project, entitled First Love [but clearly far more interesting than this title would suggest] have recently been released by ‘Deadline’:

“Set over one night in Tokyo, the film will follow Leo, a young boxer down on his luck as he meets his ‘first love’ Monica, a call girl and an addict but still an innocent. Little does Leo know, Monica is unwittingly caught up in a drug-smuggling scheme, and the two are pursued through the night by a corrupt cop, a yakuza, his nemesis, and a female assassin sent by the Chinese Triads. The characters come together in spectacular Miike style, at his most fun and anarchic.”

First Love, co-produced by Jeremy Thomas, will debut at Cannes this year.

Bring it on!!

I'm a huge film fan and will watch pretty much any type of film, from Martial Arts to Westerns, from Romances [though I don't really like Romcoms!]] to Historical Epics. Though I most certainly 'have a life', I tend to go to the cinema twice a week! However,ever since I was a kid, sneaking downstairs when my parents had gone to bed to watch old Universal and Hammer horror movies, I've always been especially fascinated by horror, and though I enjoy all types of horror films, those Golden Oldies with people like Boris Karloff and Christopher Lee probably remain my favourites. That's not to say I don't enjoy a bit of blood and gore every now and again though, and am also a huge fan of Italian horror, I just love the style.
