Back in the 90’s, I was a a huge fan of Takeshi Kitano. At some point, I thought he was so awesome, he might have been even better than Akira Kusosawa. Actually, I wasn’t the only one to think so, indeed, Kitano was definitely one of the major movie directors in the 90’s but it’s such a shame we don’t hear much from him anymore (in fact, the guy has been pretty prolific in the last decad... read more

my 2020 movie diary ♥ (39 movies items)

" Takeshi Kitano is a Cool Guy, Takeshi will fuck you up. Takeshi will devote a 5 minute long shot to him slapping a guy until he is bloodied, and put this scene in the film at least 10 times. Is that wrong? Despite myself, I was shocked by many scenes in this film. They were just so, like totally, violent! As the title says. A stylish 1980s Japanese gangster film with a Dirty Harry-esque cop character, and a very dope soundtrack which includes a remixed version of Gnossienne No. 1 by Erik Sa"
