Title: Agitator: The Cinema of Takashi Miike
Author: Tom Mes
Publisher: FAB Press
Reviewer: James Marriott
What good is life without adventure? We don't need a manual for making a movie? … we make movies but we're not authentic filmmakers. We are artisans and amateurs rather than professionals. We are agitators fiddling around with something that gives us enjoyment.These caveats aside, if you're interested in Miike Agitator is still an indispensable guide, offering a complete and detailed filmography, hundreds of stills including a colour section and details of the director's films available on DVD. And a great cover. But some of the excitement of watching Miike's films seems to have been lost along the way.
