Takashi Miike (Film director)


Takashi Miike is a Japanese film director from Osaka.

In the past, Miike had been known for churning out a prolific number of low-budget genre movies and original videos which combine comedy with extreme violence. However, his latest films have mostly been projects for major studios with more mainstream appeal.

Even so, Miike continues to maintain a very busy shooting schedule and typically directs several major films each year with very few breaks between projects.
