Personal Quote:

I don't think about the audience, I don't think about what makes them happy, because there's no way for me to know. To try to think of what makes for entertainment is a very Japanese thing. The people who think like this are old-fashioned. They think of the audience as a mass, but in fact every person in the audience is different. So entertainment for everyone doesn't exist. See more »

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."
