Three ... Extremes
This lush and horrific anthology film from three of the finest craftsmen working today – Fruit Chan, Chan-wook Park, and Takashi Miike – is an instantly memorable and squirm-inducing assemblage.

The Happiness of the Katakuris
Katakuris is something of a departure for Miike, seeing as how it's chock-full of robust romance and – we kid you not – musical numbers. While this is ultimately a crazy meditation on family values and the like, it's still mind-bogglingly goofy filmmaking, at once deeply moving and deeply annoying.

When a Stranger Calls
Simon West’s do-over of Fred Walton’s 1979 creepfest – in which babysitter Belle menaced by a stranger with a phone who probably isn’t that guy from Verizon – is a hollow, shallow, and just plain boring exercise in snooziness.
