Brilliant, surreal & amazingly filmed ... Timeless sense of storytelling, yet not mainstream nor boring aside from it's use of violence in depth of plot & subject. Kitano is a legend & true artist... i wish more non-American film was created as such; honest/humble. American film could learn from him!
