I'm not a massive fan of his style. There is only so long you can stare at a human face.
Takashi Miike also FTW.
Although I've only seen Battle Royale and Zatoichi. Oh, and Takeshi's Castle, if that counts.
is my favourite of his i think. Kikujiro is ace too!
Kikujiro IS ace, isn't it.
any of you seen 'takeshis'? one of his recent films..
but I have a DVD of DivX films of his to get through
i seem to remember sonatine being really good as well
that's my word you big git.
Zatoichi is well tits.
Is amazing as is Hana-Bi, so yes!
Beat Takeshi is el hombre. Always. He's not without subtlety either - check out 'Dolls'.
some beat films tonight now! bring on the trilogy!
Hana-Bi is my favourite. Although I like him best for his sterling work on Takeshi's Castle.
Find them compulsive viewing.
zatoichi are some of my favourite films, havnt seen anything else by him though.
was amazing when I saw it as a 13 year old, I'd never experienced a "foreign" film before and it was truly an experience to see what would be considered maverick in such a strict society - I thought he was quite right to treat people like that...!
Takeshi's just in it. But pedantry aside. Yes, I agree with the general sentiment, though I've only seen a couple.
is my favourite.
he's so multi talented, just saw on wiki that he's also a Professor!
for some reason i really like Kikujiro as well.
