Personal Quote:

I don't make rules myself. I didn't study enough to be able to make them. I'm too stupid. I spend my whole life making movies, so I have to enjoy it. Even at times when we had a very tight and difficult schedule, it was always enjoyable. Of course I wonder if the film will be successful afterwards. It's wonderful if a film becomes successful as a result of the enjoyment that we had. See more »

Trivia:

He was slated to make his English language debut with The Outsider (2018) with Tom Hardy in the titular role. However, the search for a new lead after Hardy's departure from the project conflicted with Miike's own commitments, which caused his dropout as well. See more »

Trademark:

Strong sense of childhood nostalgia is present in almost all of his films. Along with a glorification of friendship and traditional family units, both normal - Dead or Alive 2: Tôbôsha (2000) - and perverse - _Bijitâ Q (2001)_. See more »

Star Sign:

Virgo
