Sample text

But we must resist this temptation to moralize, for when we do Monday ends up as tedious and conservative as the media blowhards themselves. Rather, a return to Zero (and to laugher) is in order. But this time, to the time of Zero, the time of laughter. Monday is already a temporal category, one that straddles the week before and the week to come. Takagi wakes up Monday morning with not so much a hangover as an amnesic spell. The first part of the film is told in flashback (triggers that take us to the funeral, the café, and the bar) while the middle of the film catches up with itself by way of the media—the newspaper and TV indicate the exact time and day of the week (by the time we get to this point in the film the triggers work in reverse, so the shotgun shells take us back to the hotel room).

Rather, Miike shoots all the gore, all the decapitations, all the sadistic shredding and stretching and spraying of the body, with a desire not to shock or disgust, I think, but simply to see all of this on film. This approach might account for Miike’s phenomenal productivity, his making nearly sixty-five films over the past fifteen years. Miike makes each film without the micromanagement of an Ozu Yasujiro or the emperor-like control of a Kurosawa Akira (not to mention without the artistic seriousness of many of Miike’s peers).

Not to mention pinning to this film everything from a mathematical theory of number to Buddhist philosophy, from Lacanian psychoanalysis and the phenomenology of film experience to Marxist political economy and a dialectical theory of history. Put this way, of course, this argument is laughable. And I have not even begun to delve into some of the great philosophies of laughter (from Bergson to Baudelaire, from Soseki to Karatani). What I have quite intentionally excluded from this argument are the various cultural anthropologies of laughter.
