1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die (1990's) (124 movies items)

" Notes: To be honest, it has been a while since I have seen this flick and I should definitely re-watch it at some point. Basically, back in the 90’s, I used to be a massive fan of Takeshi Kitano’s work (he was probably one of the best directors at work at the time) and I managed to watch most of his movies. This feature was probably his most acclaimed directing effort (it even won the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival) so I had some rather high expectations before watching the damned"
