It is rare for me to watch a film and love it so much that I immediately hope for a sequel to be made. Not just any sequel will do, of course.

On the other hand, there are some who release features back to back, in rapid succession. Then, in a league of his own, there is Takashi Miike. With over one hundred films created and released since 1991, the master of the bizarre is back with his latest, First Love.
