Both are of depraved and morbid nature. So if you're into that kind of plotline that has not much depth apart from showing how messed up humanity is, then those two films are your pick.

Miike is my favourite director of all time. I've seen over 70 of his films and I think that Visitor Q is his masterpiece. The film was shot in digital which gave it an interesting and documentary style and it was made with a very low budget which gave Miike a lot of creativity freedom. It's a really hard film to describe, the story goes around sexual violence, incest, necrophilia, bullying, breast milking, S&M, prostitution.. there's so much odd stuff going on. It's a super morbid and very hard to diggest film yet it still manages to make perfect sense, the whole thing comes out as a parody of reality-tv.

So what exactly is it that makes me so fascinated about this film? The way it makes me feel! There's so much dark material in the film yet I still found it oddly funny and touching too! But it's also repulsive and perverted! I ask the same of one of the characters in the film, "What am I supposed to feel?" It's a really hard to describe film and I don't want to give much away because that could spoil the experience for those who haven't seen it. It made me feel many different emotions.

@lustmord Excellent way to describe it. I felt similar about it, but I also felt it was somewhat of a satire too... a very over the top, social satire/satire of reality tv (in a way). I've read some interesting analogies to media via this film, but I think many people may be digging for more than what's really there.

Miike's masterpiece and currently my #5 favourite film.

I don't know, this film is..super morbid and disgusting. I guess if you want to catch a glimpse of the abyss of human society, then this film is your right choice, but if you're not fond of an extreme storyline that doesn't try to sugarcoat the plot for you, then stay away from it.
Although it was interesting, it wasn't a must watch for me, on second thought. I'm just confirming that something's definitely not alright with Miike Takashi *cough*..
