Thank You Aaron for Your somehow different article
about "Koroshiya Ichi".

I am not a big fan of the works of Miike, but to say
"... this film is only brutal, don't go to see it !" is much too

There are many ways to see a film, without stating that this
one is a piece of art, or that one is garbage. Personal likes
and dislikes are sometimes not the only way to rate.

Another example is Ozu: I personally think that his later films
( like "Tokyo Monogatari" ) are just boring for me to watch, 
but nonetheless I have to admit his unique style and art, and his
big role he plays in the fields of film art.

Okay, there will always be some guys who are just looking films
like Ichi just because of the killing average, and others who will
never want to see it because of that.
But really "reading a film" does not have much to do with personal moral
feelings or dislikes.

I don't want to decide this way, what art should be and what not.
