The whole thing's as bizarre as it is disturbing. 

Well it´s not surprising since Takashi is also responsible for Ichi the Killer, which is also a truly bizarre and incredibly violent movie.

His filmography is really diverse. I've only seen a small fraction of it, but he's tackled a lot of styles. 

He made a strange 'western' some years ago, Sukiyaki Western Django, oddly for a Japanese movie made directly into English, played like a traditional US western but seemingly set in some sort of hybrid US-Japan with weird storyteller scenes starring Quentin Tarantino. 

He was also responsible for 13 Assassins which may just be the best traditional Samurai film post-Akira Kurosawa. 

It's really surprising how little known some of his movies are considering how massive one likes Audition became.

Amature sci-fi movie, starring Bruce Willis. It´s a mystery of the great ones how they convinced Willis to star in this crap movie, and an even greater mystery how they pursuased him to act this bad Confused.

This is an unusual western. Lots of tense build-up, changing allegiances and lots of blurred lines on hero and villain all leading up to a final shootout, which then never happens. I'm genuinely not sure if its anticlimactic or the best Randolph Scott western I've yet seen.

I'm not averse to a bit of nudity and violence, which this movie has in spades. However don't go watching it expecting a J.Law wankfest, because it's not. The nudity is well within the context of the story, and far from arousing. The graphic violence could be a bit offputting to some people too. In between all that though is a pretty good spy thriller, with twists aplenty.

Part 3 of 6.

The Spaghetti Western vibes are really strong in this series.

Picked this up based on a rec from Reddit. It didn't disappoint. Quite a gem. 



And here we have a much better known movie than the previous, which wasn't as good as its reputation. Maybe I'd have been more into it if I didn't already know the ending. That's the trouble with seeing movies that are too well known.

I thought this was a bit slow and a bit shit, until the end. The last third/quarter of the movie make a big difference.

A low budget horror pisstake. Has brilliantly funny moments. Unfortunately, the young heroine is an unlikeable brat.

Part 4 of 6. Still excellent. Not as serious as some samurai movies.

Now THAT is one hell of a fucking movie! I can't believe I'd never seen it before.


And this was like watching a live stream of someone playing No Man's Sky in an empty world...

Goodfellas is one of my all time favourites. Clap

IO I can't remember shit about other than Anthony Mackie was in it. Kept wondering why the guy who could land blockbuster roles like Marvel's Falcon was in such tripe.
