Takashi Miike

[ Miike, Takashi ]
Profile and general info
Name in native language: 三池崇史 (みいけ たかし)
Family name: Miike
Country: Japan
Birth date: Wednesday, August 24, [56 years old]
Birth place: Osaka, Japan
Bio
  • Miike is almost never publicly seen without wearing sunglasses.
  • Miike's early ambition was to be a motor mechanic, and his interest in engines saw him become a successful amateur motorbike racer.
  • Miike claims that Starship Troopers is his favorite movie. He admires film directors David Lynch, David Cronenberg, and Paul Verhoeven.
  • Director Eli Roth cast Miike in a cameo role in his 2006 horror film Hostel.
  • Miike graduated from Yokohama Vocational School of Broadcast and Film (Yokohama Hoso Eiga Senmon Gakko) under the guidance of renowned filmmaker Shohei Imamura.
  • His first job on TV was replacement assistant director on an episode of the TV series Black Jack.
  • Miike's first feature film credit was as AD on Zegen, directed by Shohei Imamura, dean of the Yokohama School, in 1987.
  • Miike's theatrical debut was The Third Gangster (Daisan no gokudô) in 1995.
  • Following his directorial debut in 1991, Miike turned out an exhausting 24 films (including two television miniseries) between 1999 and 2002, confirming his status as one of the busiest directors in world cinema.
  • Inspired more by Bruce Lee than Seijun Suzuki, Miike's distinctive style came more as a result of not studying the traditional rules of filmmaking than a conscious attempt to break them.
  • Miike has garnered international notoriety for depicting shocking scenes of extreme violence and bizarre sexual perversions. Many of his films contain graphic and lurid bloodshed, often portrayed in an over-the-top, cartoonish manner.
    • Takashi Miike:
      I want to shoot violent scenes, but not action scenes. The blood and pain makes it more real to the audience. Hollywood can make nice, violent movies, but I can't. In my films, people are like monsters or beasts. Their violence is extreme but at least honest.
  • Much of his work depicts the activities of criminals (especially yakuza) or concern themselves with non-Japanese living in Japan.
  • He is known for his black sense of humor and for pushing the boundaries of censorship as far as they will go.
  • Family is an important element of his films, along with a view of modern Japan as a multicultural society.

Trivia
  • Speaks no English, but did his cameo in Hostel (2005) in English for Eli Roth, of whom he is a fan. His character in the end credits is listed as "Miike Takashi."
