Giveaway: ’13 Assassins’ / Takashi Miike Prize Package

UPDATE 4/18/2011: Sorry, this giveaway is now closed. Congrats to Jeffrey T of New York and Jimmy D of Colorado, who were randomly selected as winners!

According to Wikipedia, “Takashi Miike (三池 崇史) is a highly prolific and controversial Japanese filmmaker. He has directed over seventy theatrical, video, and television productions since his debut in 1991. In the years 2001 and 2002 alone, Miike is credited with directing fifteen productions. His films range from violent and bizarre to dramatic and family-friendly.” Miike’s work notoriously depicts shocking scenes of extreme violence and/or sexual perversions. Many of his films contain graphic bloodshed or involves the activities of criminals (yakuza).

In other words, if you don’t know Takashi Miike’s work, here’s what you need to know… it’s often ultra-violent and graphic. His style has garnered him a cult following around the world.

Miike’s latest work available in the U.S. is 13 Assassins, a samurai epic based on a true incident. It is a bravado period action film set at the end of Japan’s feudal era in which a group of unemployed samurai are enlisted to bring down a sadistic lord and prevent him from ascending to the throne and plunging the country into a war-torn future. Nominated for a Golden Lion at the 67th Venice International Film Festival in 2010, 13 Assassins is now available on Magnolia On-Demand!

Of course, you can check the official 13 Assassins site or Facebook page, but if you actually want to watch it, go to Magnolia On-Demand!

About jozjozjoz

jozjozjoz is a taiwanese-american gal who lives and blogs underneath the hollywood sign and who doesn’t clean her fishtank unless the fish starts to do the backstroke. she is also able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, but cannot stop from bumping into door handles, cabinet doors, and anything else that protrudes or has a sharp edge. she does not run with scissors for this same reason. she can pet the fur off a dog but don’t ask her to go anywhere near a horse. or a moth. or a roach. her dealings with L.A.’s finest (aka the parking violations department) are legend, as are her giant sneezes. Other than the two too many joz’s, jozjozjoz is a perfectly normal, relatively sane individual who defies the odds, reaches for the stars, and carries moonbeams home in a jar. She’d rather be a fish… but not in her own dirty fishtank.
