Rated R · 109 minutes · 2011
Like some of Jean-Pierre Melville’s late works (Le Samourai, Le Cercle Rouge), Takeshi Kitano’s 2010 feature pares down the crime film to a repetition of favorite motifs: the story is something of a reductio ad absurdum of the yakuza flick, with one honor killing leading to another and so on, until nearly all the main characters are dead. As a writer-director-editor, Kitano approaches the material like an ace musician riffing on a familiar melody, centering whole scenes around a deadpan joke, a funky camera setup, or an ingenious sound cue. Kitano is clearly enjoying his powers as a master of the form, and the movie invites the viewer to share in his enjoyment. In Japanese with subtitles.
