For anyone that cares, you can watch the trailer for Takeshi Kitano’s new film Outrage Beyond over at The Playlist. The first one was simply terrible and this sequel looks even worse. Come on dude!
I can’t believe that i’ve never seen this film, Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence by Nagisa Oshima. At the very end of the trailer check out a really weird looking Takeshi Kitano right up in your face… For some reason it’s kind of gross to hear him speak English, it’s like it’s beneath him.
For extra reading there’s Lawrence of Shinjuku by Chuck Stephens
