This ranks as of the best Kitano films and it's another film that gets better after getting to know him better. There's a strong feeling of hopelessness in the film, these characters don't care if they die or not. Beeing a Yakuza has turned them into emotionless and cold human beeings. The suicidal tendencies from Kitano's character in the film reflected state of his mind at the time . The plot is simple but serves its purpose and pretty much like in Fireworks the emotions of the characters are told through the little dialogue and facil expressions. The violent atmosphere of the film contrasts with the humour and the chilling scenes at the beach, where these characters just turn off their brains from their Yakuza jobs and try to have a bit of fun for once in their lives. The cardboard sumo match was so original! The cast does a great job making you care for these characters and the soundtrack by Joe Hisaishi is very atmospheric.

An unconventional yakuza film by our beloved Kitano. There was one particular scene that really got me, it seemed so surreal that I had to watch that specific scene twice. Anyway, I loved it, and gave it 4 out 5, therefore I recommend it to anyone who hasn't seen it yet, or didn't get the chance to taste Kitano's vision of film.
