It's weirdly -- and often wonderfully -- entertaining.

It's freakishly interesting and even outright hilarious at times, but, then again, so are most funerals.

By the second hour, Miike's story fails to punctuate its powerful setup, and the work, much like the family itself, ends up a tangled mess.
