Takashi Miike is a highly prolific, and highly controversial, Japanese auteur; who states his primary influences to be: Creator/DavidLynch, Creator/DavidCronenberg, and Creator/PaulVerhoeven. A combination he takes and turns UpToEleven in many of his films. He has directed several movies a year since his first release in 1991, as well as a handful of television programs, for an average of about 3-4 a year; starting soon after graduating Yokohama Vocational School of Broadcast and Film, where he studied under legendary Japanese filmmaker Shohei Imamura. Although the bulk of his work are theatrical releases, mainly {{Yakuza}} action films, he also produces a considerable number of DirectToVideo V-cinema releases as well. The former are often used to finance the latter; which he claims he does because they allow him more creative control, and greater freedom from censorship and traditional narrative structure.

Both inside and outside Japan he's best known for BlackComedy, over-the-top violence, and {{Gorn}}; but his films cover a much wider range of genres and styles. Along with his signature action and horror, he's also produced examples of period drama, sentimental road picture, teen drama, more traditional crime drama, children's movies, and some that defy any attempt at labeling, such as the live-action/claymation horror comedy musical ''Film/TheHappinessOfTheKatakuris''.
