Miike Mpd Psycho
6 September 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I got the entire of series 1 of this and i thought it was GREAT like a lot of Miike films it doesn't seem to make much sense until you see the end of it and also like other Miike films he has a weird habit of randomly blurring parts out. The story of MPD psycho does pan out quite considerably after the first DVD and does get very involved and interesting, i sat and watched the entire first series back to back and totally enjoyed it. Miike does tend to make films seem somewhat obscure in the way they are written and directed but thats what i find makes him so great, you spend ages trying to work out whats going on and then you're like "Oh of course it is!" and it just seems so obvious the same applies to MPD despite what other people have said i thought it was excellent
