Format: DVD
The other reviews will give you a description of what the film is about (though probably too much of one), so I won't dwell on the subject. It's a film that Should be seen and not described anyway. This Is one of my all time favorite films, so I am going to be incredibly biased. This film is excellent: Takashi Miike (the director) is perfectly in his element with this kind of film. The best way, I think, to describe this film is to say that Audition is to Japan, what Silence of the Lambs or Psycho is/was to America. The lead actress, Eihi Shiina, does a frighteningly great job in her film debut. Simply put, Audition is an awesome and exceptional film :).

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By John E. Lawson on March 9 2006
Format: DVD
Audition illustrates how our expectations and interests color what we perceive. There seems to be a lot of debate about whether it's horror or romance, but really it's both - and an excellent example of both genres at the same time. I don't believe there's really a sucker punch here either, as it's clear throughout that something doesn't add up about the woman, and the man is too blind to listen to reason. What happens, though, is your emotional investment in the characters in the first two thirds of the film makes you hope against hope that there can be a happy ending. We're used to the Hollywood kid-glove treatment. The gore, violence, etc. isn't as bad as most reviewers would lead you to believe; watch Jack torture suspects on the USA television show 24, or see some episodes of Oz, and you'll find scenes as bad as this. What makes the snakes slither in your gut and bite your spleen is the emotionally crushing element, which - in this era of anything-goes desensitization - is a testament to Miike's directorial prowess. There's also a wonderfully bizarro sequence where Miike finally pulls out all the stops and plunges you into the pain, skillfully show you the what and why without "explaning" things in the typical dumbed-down Hollywood way. Audition is a must-see film, especially if you're into cross-genre work.

Format: DVD
Yes, the sound of the movie's anti-heroine as she sticks needles into her man's eyes stays with me. Audition is a gross melange of styles (love story/personal angst/macabre horror) which builds into a cresendo of harrowing & dramatically brilliant cinema where Asami, the seemingly ingenue girl who auditions for & wins a widower's love, leads him into a spiral of psychological confusion, so much that you wonder if the final scenes happen. Asami's tortured past creeps up on her & the boudnaries of reality & paranoia devastate Asami & the audience (let alone her partner!) to alarming effect. Let's just say that this movie is a rollercoaster of moods culminating in some of the most unsheathed & suggestively horrific images ever put into cinema. A movie which Hollywood doyenne's would never even entertain creating, cheesewire & pins will never be looked at in the same respect again!! Never did I imagine that Japanese cinema would be so brilliant (watch also Ring & Ring 2 for testimony) nor so grittily realistic. As a lover of horror, this movies not only whet but satisfied my appetite. Okay, it starts off a bit slow as a love story, but that's the point. The gripping transformation in Asami makes her acts of brutality increasingly powerful & downright scary. May put you off looking for Mrs Right:-)))))

Format: Blu-ray
“If you ever need your Foot to be lost in-translation”this is the movie for you,sometimes it’s not always
good to trust a woman who can be,well a woman,they always seem to want more space than the
universe,what a subtle (suttle) little movie this is, it creeps up on you like a ton of bricks,
“Auditions”are open to find the woman of his dreams, “Shigeharu Aoyama” (Ryo Ishiashi) (the Grudge) is looking for the
perfect woman,after the death of his first wife,it’s been Seven years now and his son wants him to get married
or go dating,so his film producer friend “Yasuhisa Yoshikawa”( Jun Kunimura),(Ichi the Killer)set up a fake Audition,
after seeing about Thirty women he picked the silent one,that was a big mistake,his producer friend did not like the
idea of him seeing her and warned him to stop,but you know when you’re smitten with love nothing matters,
This,{you can call it what you want} Horror/Torture,it’s the way I see it,will make your Skin crawl with pain,
There’s a saying on the back cover of this Disc cover,that say it all, “Mainstream films don’t come much more disturbing
than this,sometimes I wonder why film-makers make movies like this,then I remember {Jeffery Dahmer}and a-lot more,
Runtime 115 Minutes. this two disc one Blu-ray (movie).one D.V.D.special features has and extra 90 min.of footage,
5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio.
16:9
widescreen.

Format: DVD
By far one of the best horror movies to come out in a long time. Stylish, funny, romantic, terrifying and disturbing all wrapped up into one incredible movie.
The end of the movie is extremely brutal, but so well done....
