A very good movie

Back in the 90's, I was a big fan of Takeshi Kitano and I watched all his movies. This movie was favorite one. It was funny, entertaining, weird and very poetic at the same time. A typical Kitano flick.

"This is the first "Beat Takeshi" movie that I have watched where he is not the main character/ lead role. This was one of his early films (1st or maybe 2nd?). I really liked the start of this movie it was fun and thought that he will redeem his self in my eyes after the big disappointment of "Brother" but it went bad. But still this is okay, the ending just suck, this could have end way way better.

"25.7. Vaikka Takeshi Kitano onkin aloittanut uransa koomikkona, ja pidän Takeshi's Castlea ihan hauskana sarjana, on hänen suurin heikkoutensa juuri huumori, jota hän ei tunnu elokuvissaan osaavan tehdä yhtään. Hassutteluyrmyily ja väkivalta aiheuttavat muutamat hymähdykset, mutta elokuvan kantavana voimana ne eivät toimi mitenkään. Elokuvan päähenkilö on todella rasittava. "

"12.11 DVD Rewatch Muiden Kitanojen uusintakatseluiden yhteydessä piti katsoa myöskin tämä miehen yakuzafilmi ja todeta taas kerran kuinka tajuttoman aliarvostettu mestariteos onkaan kyseessä. Tämän elokuvan mahtavuutta on vaikea laittaa sanoiksi, mutta minä nautin jokaisesta sekuntissa mitä se tuo eteen, liittyi se sitten pesäpalloon, pallinaamailevaan päähenkilöön tai sikailevaan Kitanoon. Kitanolle ominaista huumoria kaikkein mustimmillaan ja hienoimmillaan. Omituinen yleistunne"

Katselut 2012 (127 movies items)

"5.8. Rewatch 3 - 4 Kaikinpuolin uusintakatselun myötä parempi kuin muistin. Kitanon perus hitaan seesteinen ohjaus toimii tuttuun tyylin hienosti, ja keskeisessä osassa elokuvaa oleva baseball, johon liitetään myöhemmässä vaiheessa myös ohjaajalla tyypillinen yakuza-meninki. Elokuvan näyttelijäporukka hoitaa roolinsa hienosti sekä puolipaikkeilla mukaan astuvan Kitanon esittämä Uehara, joka on kaikessa kusipäisyydessään loistava."

"Masaki on kaikesta päätellen kulmiensa yksinkertaisin tyyppi. Mikään ei tahdo sujua, ei oikein baseball eivätkä työtkään. Hän tarjoutuu auttamaan vastapalvelukseksi ystäväänsä, jota paikallinen yakuza uhkailee, ja lähtee Okinawalle etsimään aseita. Siellä hän tapaa mahdollisesti äärimmäisimmän vastakohdan persoonallisuudelleen mitä voikaan olla, Takeshi Kitanon esittämän pienemmän mittaluokan yakuzan. Boiling Point taistelee ensimmäisen puoliskonsa läpi. Masakin mon"

Movie Diary 2012 (551 movies items)

"21.4. Varsin hämmentävä kokonaisuus, jossa kaikkien sorsimalla luuserilla keittää hieman yli ja pian sotkeudutaan yakuzojen välienselvittelyihin. Jossain välissä kuvaan astuu Kitanon suorastaan hellyyttävän kusipäinen hahmo, joka hakkaa vaimoaan ihan vain ollakseen tälle vittumainen. Syvempi sisältöpuoli jää luonnollisesti pienten pintapuolisten ajatusten peittoon, mutta filmi jaksaa juuri omintakeisuutensa ansiosta kantaa loppuun asti. Mielenkiintoisesti etäännyttävät kuvak"

"6.4 DVD Elokuva erikoisesta, jälkeenjääneeltä vaikuttavasta sällistä, joka suututtaa autokorjaamolla töissä ollessaan yhden yakuzan miehistä. Asiaa koitetaan sopia, mutta persiillehän se menee ja matkaan tulee monta mutkaa ja randomia kohtausta. Jännällä tapaa erilainen Kitano, mutta yhtä aikaa niin perinteinen. Dialogia on vähän ja niin on eleitäkin. Musiikkia ei kuulla yhtään, mutta se ei haittaa tunnelman kannalta. Boiling Pointia on hankala lokeroida mihinkään genr"

"Yeah, not necessarily Kitano at his best. It seems to me he was still honing his skills/style at this point, Boiling Point is a far cry from the likes of Sonatine and Hana-Bi. This is such an odd film though, noticeably so even for Kitano. Very little of this makes any sense from my perspective, but what did I expect? Kitano is a madman."
