Audition (1999)

I remember the first time I ever hear of Takashi Miike's Audition was in an interview with Quentin Tarintino. He was listing off his top 20 movies that have been made since he started making films. For the most part, I enjoy most of the films that were on the list and still to this day I thoroughly enjoy his taste and thoughts on movies. I remember when he mentioned Audition he specifically described it as "A true masterpiece, if there ever is one". That got me curious, and since it is horror month at OWF, I thought why not pick this film and see what it is all about. Unfortunately, no disrespect to Tarintino, but I cannot find anything close to a masterpiece in this film. Here are my thoughts on Audition (1999).
