    THIS GUY MAKES SOME PRETTY AWESOME MOVIES. I WATCHED FIREWORKS (HANA-BI), BOILING POINT, VIOLENT COP, AND SONATINE.

    VIOLENT COP WAS GOOD, BUT THE OTHER 3 I REALLY, REALLY LIKE.
     
  2. Dude is killing shit both as a director and an actor (he always plays in his movies) 'brother' was also awesome.

    hana-bi is great and in my opinion his best film (although not my favorite. that one would be 'kids return').

    battle royale was not directed by takeshi kitano; it was by kinji fukasaku, who i consider one of the greatest japanese filmmakers ever. he pretty much pioneered the yakuza 'genre'. a boxset of his just came out too. cop that shit.

    normally i wouldn't care, but since WEAK NIGGUH said it's good, then it must be.

    I'm a WEAK NIGGUH fan.
