General info

Country: Japan
Year: 2001
IMDB Rating: 7 6371 votes
Plot: 'VISITOR Q' is one of the most disturbing and taboo-bashing experimental works from Takashi Miike of 'One Missed Call' and 'Ichi the Killer' fame. 'VISITOR Q' presents a harrowing absurdist take on the reality TV phenomenon, depicting the chilling disintegration of a dysfunctional family.

A father, who is a failed former television reporter tries to mount a documentary about violence and sex among youths. He proceeds to have sex with his daughter who is now a prostitute and films his son being humiliated and hit by classmates. 'Q', a perfect stranger somehow gets involved and enter the bizzare family who's son beats his mom, who in turn is also a prostitute and a heroin addict...

Visitor Q is the sixth and final part of the Love Cinema series, produced by the CineRocket company. All six movies were shot on digital video and intended for the video market, although they received a brief theatrical run in a small cinema in Tokyo's suburban Shimokitazawa district.

The critics praised 'VISITOR Q'
Time Out (London edition): 'This phenomenally provocative film may well turn out to be Miike's masterpiece. Perhaps the most devastating attack on the nuclear family ever made.'

The Village Voice: 'For social norms peeled, boiled, and ground into pulp, Takashi Miike's Visitor Q reigns!'

Variety: 'Blackly humorous yarn about a stranger who sets up home within an amoral, wacko family. Guaranteed to offend almost everyone except for card-carrying thrill-seekers!'

Featured reviews for

Visitor Q
Midnight Eye, by Tom Mes source:
«The film might sound like a parade of depravity and an assault on the sanctified institution of the family, but is surprisingly conservative at heart.», by Peter Zsurka source:
«As the story advances in this movie various taboos come to life (the shock factor), the way things are presented is a little humorous. If you are pretty open-minded and don't take things to seriously you are going to start laughing at some of the situations that transpires in this movie.»
The Spinning Image, by Daniel Auty source:
«In a filmography filled with some seriously fucked-up delights, Visitor Q stands out as perhaps Takaski Miike's most comprehensively offensive film.»
La Plume Noire, by Sandrine Marques source:
«This small-scale film by Miike is reminiscent of Pasolini's masterpiece Teorema. In Visitor Q, the "disruptive" stranger provokes emotional liberation and the redefinition of the dysfunctional family unit.»
eFilmCritic, by Brian McKay source:
«Visitor Q is 1/3 dark (really dark) comedy, 1/3 fetish pornography, and 1/3 just plain "Ewwwww!" As a friend of mine likes to say, "There's funny, and then there's WHOAH!" and Visitor Q frequently dances over that line.»
Asian Film Reviews source:
«With all of its disgusting imagery and disturbing subject matter, Visitor Q is not for everybody; however, underneath all of the excess, there lies an effective black comedy.»
