Takeshi Kitano's Movies, commented

People who added this item 636 Average listal rating (334 ratings) 8.1 IMDB Rating 7.7
Kitano's best movie is wonderful both as a cinematic experience as an emotional trip.
Otger's rating:
People who added this item 360 Average listal rating (206 ratings) 8 IMDB Rating 7.8
Kikujiro (1999)
This may be the most beautiful road movie filmed in years. Joe Hisaishi's soundtrack is more than worthy.
Otger's rating:
People who added this item 334 Average listal rating (203 ratings) 7.8 IMDB Rating 7.5
Sonatine (1993)
Sonatine contains all the elements of Kitano's works (his themes, directional skills and that japanese "nonsensu" sense of humour)
Otger's rating:
His most comercial movie is a major achievement that everybody should watch.

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.
Otger's rating:
People who added this item 112 Average listal rating (65 ratings) 7.4 IMDB Rating 7.5
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.

People who added this item 326 Average listal rating (201 ratings) 7.1 IMDB Rating 7.1
The first and only american movie is entertaining and intelligent. The plot is a perfect analogy with what Kitano did with this movie.

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.
Otger's rating:
People who added this item 60 Average listal rating (37 ratings) 5.4 IMDB Rating 6.2
Getting Any? (1995)
"nonsensu" humour, with some funny moments. It's an stupid movie... hell yeah!
Otger's rating:
People who added this item 155 Average listal rating (85 ratings) 6.4 IMDB Rating 6.8
Boring, and forgettable if you have watched other Kitano's movies. After this movie, Kitano sharpened everything that was lacking here.
Otger's rating:
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.
Otger's rating:
People who added this item 63 Average listal rating (35 ratings) 6.3 IMDB Rating 6.4
Seems to be the same as "Takeshis". Nothing new here, and Kantoku Banzai it's not as funny.
Otger's rating:

This japanese director may be changing our way to watch cinema nowadays... just wait.
