I can understand people being bored with movies, it happens and everyone's interests are different. But i am shock no one here said that audition was boring. the only reason I even heard of the movie was because of the final scene in it, so the first hour and a half i was bored as sin.
Of course being bored doesn't mean that it wasn't a good film, I just knew everything about it and therefore the end wasn't shocking at all.
Loved Ichi though, it was so surreal and over the top ridiculous to the point where the story doesn't even matter anymore. It was a fun ride
