Electric Sheep Film Club: Audition / Ôdishon

For the second meeting of the all new Electric Sheep Film Club at the Prince Charles Cinema off Leicester Square, we’re proud to be showing:

Takashi Miike’s Audition (1999)

Still from Audition by Takashi Miike

Still from Audition by Takashi Miike

Enfant terrible Takashi Miike’s most notorious work remains genuinely shocking. The story of a middle-aged man who, following his son’s advice, holds auditions to find a new wife is the pretext for an exploration of fantasy, desire, cruelty and obsession that is as visually beautiful as it is gruesomely disturbing.
…and then chat with other film-goers and Electric Sheep writers about the film in the bar after the screening. (with thanks to Palisades Tartan)

Wednesday 3rd June, 8pm, Prince Charles Cinema, 7 Leicester Place, WC2
