Japanese Film Director – Shooting in Style

Pay homage to the star, director of directors; Takeshi Kitano. At the Yu Digital hang out, we regular screen his works. We fight over the movie of the month; this month its Takeshi Kitano’s Hana Bi. A disturbed Japanese police officer aiding to a sick wife, and his partner in crime amidst gang wars on the Tokyo streets, left paralysed in search for the true meaning of life. I won’t spoil it for you.

“The film is ambiguous, an ambiguity that reflects on Japan today, and a world in which nothing is clear. Once I made the film, I realised it was about this feeling of vague disquiet in Japan and in the rest of the world, a feeling that is gaining on us, getting less vague.”- Ap
