Visitor Q

3

Your everyday tale of bullying, incest, anal rape, necrophilia and lactating nipples, Visitor Q is undoubtedly the most bonkers Takashi Miike movie to yet hit these shores.

Shamed documentary-maker Kiyoshi (Kenichi Endo) visits a brothel to chronicle the life of a sex slave. He instead shags his runaway daughter, paying extra for recording privileges, before inviting home violent stranger Q (Kazushi Watanabe) to play with his wife's squirting dugs.

Another censor-baiting taboo-smasher from the man behind Audition and Ichi The Killer, this shot-on-video cheapie often feels like exactly that. It is, after all, one of 50-odd movies that Miike's made in the last 13 years. Nonetheless, Visitor Q works as a sallow satire on reality TV, while also giving us one of cinema's most dysfunctional families: estranged freaks who bond, paradoxically, as events turn ever more sick.
