My favorite Cinema as of now.
(Used to be Hong Kong Action)

Here is how I would describe the genius of Miike:
Compared to a guy like, lets say Tarantino, who is meticulously crafting a masterpiece like carving out a magnificent statue from a great mountain of gold with having a lot of time on his hands, Miike is *beep* out flawed exploitative, yet poetic, gems of cinema, three times a year.

Miike's (in my opinion) finest collaborator is Daisuke Tengan (the first son of Miike's own mentor Shohei Imamura).
Tengan wrote the screenplay for Audition and 13 assassins.

Then we have Masa Nakamura who wrote the screenplay for both young thugs movies (who I have yet to see) The bird people in china (a masterpiece) Dead or alive 2: Birds, -Big, bang love: Juvenile A- and Sukiyaki western Django.

Sakichi Satô (Charlie Brown from Kill Bill) Wrote Ichi The killer and Gozu.

Kikumi Yamagishi Wrote Hara-kiri and Katakuries.

Ichiro Ryu Wrote Dead or alive: Hanzaisa, Ley Lines, The city of lost souls and dead or alive: final.

Toshiyuki Morioka Wrote Fudoh and Blues harp.

Itaru Era Wrote Full Metal Yakuza and Visitor Q.

"Miike is one of the greatest directors living today"
- Quentin Tarantino.

"The ultimate anarchist/artist... Miike paints... landscapes with blood...
His films are always disturbing... guaranteed to push the limits..."
- Guillermo Del Toro.

"Miike films are pure punk rock. He is a true visionary and does things that
few other directors would dare."
- Eli Roth.

"Many actors hope to one day participate in a Takashi Miike film. Especially guys. They want to go back to back being naughty boys and go wild. Miike lets them indulge themselfs in this fantasy freely and knows exactly how to provoke them. And once provoked, the actors bombard each other with their energy, lifting the film up and spinning it off into higher orbit. I was also one of those guys who were allowed to indulge themselfs. It was a very joyfull experience.
Fierce. Nonsensical. Vulgar. Powerful. These are words that could be used to describe Takashi Miike. But without a doubt the most essential words are self-assured and clever."

- Shin'ya Tsukamoto.

I've tried to be objective and quite honestly, I think I succeded fairly well. You be the judge.

Concerning the list:
These are the films who rank's the highest in my mind as goes for acting, cinematography, music, editing, direction, script etc. All of that, that defines cinema - art, philosophy, entertainment- will you find at its highest game, scrolling down this excuberant list of excellence.

One strong honorable mention goes to Danny Boyle's Sunshine. Had it not been for that terrible third act (to be fair a third act with some scenes of great power) I'd put the film at the top ten of the decade.

I am far from being a voice of knowledge, concerning the cinema of old, I am yet to master modern cinema and all of its liberties, so please forgive me should you find obvious titles not being present, it is more than likely that I've yet to see them.

When I've seen more pre-70's films I'll expand the list to 100 titles.
