    always looking forward to Kitano! (hadn't heard of this either)

    thought the second film was an improvement over the first, so let's hope that trend continues

    Takeshi is the man.

    I once got a friend who adored MXC to watch Brother because I told him that “Vic Romano” from MXC was in it. His response to me the next day when I asked if he liked the movie was priceless.

    City On Fire has seen it, sounds like it's good, not great.

    I had forgotten there is a 3rd film. This past Saturday night, I watched my ex-rental DVD of the first film & still liked it. I thought the car-hanging scene ended with a decapitation because something flies off to the left side of the screen. I thought it was his head but now I see I was wrong. Still, it's a cool scene! I have the 2nd film on bd & plan on watching it very soon. The first time around, I felt it was less violent than the first but I still liked it.

    English subs included as expected.

    Do you know if this is available internationally? These jap blu rays are way too expensive for a mediocre flick like this one but I'd be willing to buy a german/french one and just add my own subs.

    Btw, @Takuma - I know you mentioned you don't really watch any contemporary flicks anymore but have you heard any good word of mouth regarding Masato Harada's latest epic SEKIGAHARA? I heard it was killing it over there at the box office. Amazon.jp has the BD up for pre-order for a Feb release date & it's English friendly.

    I'm sure Outrage will get foreign BD releases sooner or later. I'm not aware of any being available yet, but I haven't really checked either.

    I don't know anything about Sekigahara. I didn't even know it was directed by Harada.

    I think I've only seen 5 new Japanese films theatrically this year... Aroused by Gymnopedies, Wet Woman in the Wind, Dawn of Felines, Antiporno, and White Lily

    Caught this during a flight...

    Outrage: Final Chapter (Japan, 2017) [Flight] - 3/5

    Stylish but incredibly convoluted yakuza film is probably the best Kitano can do these days. Writer/director/actor Kitano has made himself play second fiddle in his own movie, with the main focus being on an extremely complex series of secret alliances, double crossings and double crossings that are planned don't have time to happen because someone else already double crossed someone, most of which have little to do with Kitano's character. Kitano's tough guy charisma still works, however, and there are moments of violence that drop the jaw. The human depth of his 90s masterpieces is long gone, as are the magical Joe Hisaishi scores, replaced by too much talking (and yelling) but at least this is a somewhat decent yakuza film with proper production values, unlike the garbage other Japanese filmmakers are putting out these days.
