Review Writing a synopsis for a Hisao Maki script is a challenge - I have tried to put some sense into the above summary despite the lack of coherence in the plot on screen! As with Bodyguard Kiba, Miike is reunited with Maki and the results are overwhelmingly bad. In the interim, Miike has directed great films like Bird People in China, Dead or Alive 2, the Kuroshakai trilogy and Audition...It is unsurprising that in over 150 minutes of film that their are several great moments in Family, these are all provided by Miike's imagination and approach to rather poorly written material. Flashes of bravura editing, occasionally brilliant set-ups and great uses of lighting are here.
