You know that meme photo of Jackie Chan going ‘wtf?!!!’ That was more or less my entire reaction throughout all of Gozu. And lo and behold, I enjoyed the hell out of it. It’s no masterpiece, unlike Takashi Miike’s earlier film Audition, but it is a rather hilariously weird surrealist black comedy. A comparison to a Japanese Twin Peaks would perhaps be apt. Occasionally, Gozu does feel a bit like surrealism for surrealism’s sake, but it does come around in the end. Many memorable moments here, and one of Takashi Miike’s more coherent works.
