Film #243: TAKESHI KITANO L'IMPREVISIBLE
Takeshi Kitano L’imprevisible
4 out of 5 stars
Jean-Pierre Limosin presents this 68 minute examination of the great Japanese comedy/action star, Takeshi “Beat” Kitano. The documentary is basically a series of interviews that looks at the man’s work, his process, his theories on what makes for a good film, etc. In-depth and immensely interesting- especially for fans of Kitano’s – this one comes HIGHLY recommended. Kitano is a bit of an enigma here in the US, so I, for one, welcome any information I can get on the man. I admire his films and his career, so I was very excited to see this. Happily, it did not disappoint. Good stuff!
