Wow. A movie that opens up a plot hole and throws the gore of Audition through it?
That does sound most painful.
I watched Audition after a co-worker kept talking about scary and good it was supposed to be. When I came in the morning after watching it, all scarred and disturbed ... he asked, "So how was it?"

I liked Audition, even wrote a largely positive review of it for the Washington Asia Press. From what I've seen, I think it's Miike's best work--but I had to turn away for several scenes. I would never recommend it to anyone that I didn't think had an incredibly high threshold for gore. Even then, it calls for a long, detailed explanation of just how disturbing it really is.

Yeah, I can't say it was bad. It was well done.
I just can't recommend to anyone with a hundred warnings. :|
