"Comedian, television host, painter, author, producer, distributor, and all-around superstar, Takeshi “Beat” Kitano is best known to international audiences as one of the great contemporary filmmakers. Watching Kitano’s films, you learn to expect the unexpected, whether it’s a swiftly-delivered chopstick into the brainpan or Kitano’s radical shifts between bleak yakuza films, contemplative character pieces, and ventures into wistful comedy." -Metrograph
