Audition Réalisé par Takashi Miike
What’s worse than the sadistic atrocity you’ll see on the screen may be the sound—the cacophonous harmony of wire cutting through flesh and bone—and Asami’s playful “kiri kiri kiri” chant as she punctures her victim’s body.

10+ years ago, I saw the torture scene as a woman’s bloody, uncensored vengeance upon a man who’d had the power to toy with her, and shape her future. Now, Audition no longer feels like a war-of-the-sexes with one victor. Instead, it’s a sad commentary on a quagmire that seems more timely than ever, and leaves both sides debilitated. Maybe that’s not as sexy and doesn’t carry the same cultural cachet, but for me the film has finally moved beyond its iconic image. Deeper, deeper, deeper.

What begins as a slow burn drama about deception quickly turns to all-out horror, as perceptions are not what they seem as surface manners conceal ulterior motives. Toying with the image of the ideal Japanese woman, the film subverts expectations and tackles the objectification of women through a dark plot of violence and revenge.
