Critic Reviews of "Audition"Boston GlobeNovember 30, 2001
This movie, at just under two hours, is a long crawl from inception to climax.Chicago TribuneNovember 29, 2001
Miike is brilliant at transforming the mundane and familiar ... into something sinister and eerie.Los Angeles TimesNovember 16, 2001
A diabolically adroit piece of filmmaking that goes even further than the films of Italy's excruciatingly macabre Dario Argento.Philadelphia InquirerNovember 01, 2001
This brazen shocker is never less than compelling -- even when you feel compelled to shut your eyes.Houston ChronicleOctober 19, 2001
There will be many people who consider Audition an atrocity, and a few who find it a stimulating cinema experience.Dallas Morning NewsOctober 18, 2001
The shock imperative takes on a life of its own and floats away from the lengthy setup.The SkinnyMarch 01, 2016
With escalating unease and a switch and bait that Hitchcock would be proud of, Audition culminates in its infamously disturbing dénouement.Radio TimesDecember 13, 2015
If you can stomach it, this profoundly moving film will leave you dazed.GuardianDecember 10, 2015
A stomach-turning masterpiece.Reel Times: Reflections on CinemaMarch 09, 2011
Whether reading Audition as a portrait of coming to terms with grief, a feminist revenge tale, or a graphic exploration of romantic attachment and idealism, it remains a terrifying film.EmanuelLevy.ComDecember 20, 2010
An extremely disturbing and violent psychological thriller from the gifted Japanese director Takashi Miike, which will linger in memory long after you see the film.Suite101.comSeptember 25, 2010
It's Japanese provocateur Takashi Miike's best film - a mordant spin on "Little Red Riding Hood" with sexist expectations as the wolf on which the tables are turned. Its "kiri, kiri" refrain also is the Zeroes' answer to "Is it safe?" from "Marathon Man."
