New Times (L.A.) by Andy Klein

While the whole is diverting, the ending's utter repudiation of reality seems like pissing on the audience; -- we feel like we've been suckers for bothering to care about the characters at all.


L.A. Weekly by Mark Olsen

Not for the squeamish (a guy rips out his own arm, for goodness' sake), the film is nevertheless more than just a gonzo gross-out. But not by much.


New York Post by V.A. Musetto

I've seen three or four other movies by Miike, and I can tell you that he's one of the most exciting, versatile directors working today.
