Takeshi Kitano is a rather accomplished Japanese director who made his name with gangster films earlier in his career. According to wikipedia he also is: a “comedian, singer, actor, tap dancer, film editor, presenter, screenwriter, author, poet, painter, and one-time video game designer.” So you know, he’s got all that going for him. Before he turns to tap dancing though, Kitano is returning to the gangster films. His latest, Outrage is described as this:
In a ruthless battle for power, several yakuza clans vie for the favor of their head family in the Japanese underworld. The rival bosses seek to rise through the ranks by scheming and making allegiances sworn over sake. Long-time yakuza Otomo has seen his kind go from elaborate body tattoos and severed fingertips to becoming important players on the stock market. Theirs is a never-ending struggle to end up on top, or at least survive, in a corrupt world where there are no heroes but constant betrayal and vengeance.
And here’s the trailer:
I love subtitles, because then I can watch trailers without actually turning the sound on. I know I should to get the full experience, but it’s just so tempting to stay lazy.
But the absolute best part of this movie is the fact that this was the second image that came up on Google Image Search when I searched for “outrage.” I love the Internet.
