"A perfect movie to start this month, it's fun, it's sad, it's violent at the same time. This is the first Beat Takeshi movie I experienced, and I'm really impressed. He won me over as a fan. Favorite character: Takeshi Kitano as Yoshitaka Nishi (you don't want to mess with this guy)"

"29.07. PC/TV, 1st viewing DIRECTED BY Takeshi Kitano Not quite as good as my friend rating of 9.5 suggests. Still great. The action scenes were wonderfully out-of-place and Kitano is incredibly badass even without saying much anything. What I most love about the film, though, is the gorgeous artwork apparently made by Kitano himself. Combined with the film and Joe Hisaishi's excellent soundtrack, they make an other-worldly atmosphere. I was reminded of certain scenes in Tarkovsky films. Sadly"
