Fireworks (1997)
Kitano's best movie is wonderful both as a cinematic experience as an emotional trip.

Kikujiro (1999)
This may be the most beautiful road movie filmed in years. Joe Hisaishi's soundtrack is more than worthy.

Sonatine (1993)
Sonatine contains all the elements of Kitano's works (his themes, directional skills and that japanese "nonsensu" sense of humour)

A movie with a thin plot line, where the most important thing to watch here is what you feel in front of each scene. Unforgettable.

Dolls (2002)
Kitano tries (and achieves) to create an artistical movie with a weird - but beautiful - plot.

Kids Return (1996)
A good mixture between drama and comedy about young people in Japan. Seems like a modern japanese version of Coppola's Rumble Fish or The Outsiders.

Brother (2000)
The first and only american movie is entertaining and intelligent. The plot is a perfect analogy with what Kitano did with this movie.

Violent Cop (1989)
First Kitano's movie is a great show that already shows his directional skills.

Takeshis' (2005)
Weird, rare, unique... is this movie art, or it's just Kitano laughin at us? Only watch this if you have watched all other Kitano's movies.

Boiling Point (1990)
Boring, and forgettable if you have watched other Kitano's movies. After this movie, Kitano sharpened everything that was lacking here.

Quite dissapointing. It could have been another good movie like Brother, but there are too many characters and the plot is too much mechanichal (there is no rythm change in the whole movie). It's very similar to Election, by Jonnie To. But worse.

Seems to be the same as "Takeshis". Nothing new here, and Kantoku Banzai it's not as funny.
