I saw this in Australia, not long after it first came out. I remember liking it - mainly for its atmosphere, and for those contrasts you described in your blog entry. I think I'd not long come back from Japan (or was I about to go - I can't remember now) - so it was interesting to see the amazingly talented side of 'Beat Takeshi', the compere of many a low brow comedy show on TV. Perhaps this is where he makes his money.


I think it's the zany TV stuff that allows Kitano to make these serious "arty" films, which I don't think are very lucrative. I think they are his creative outlet, and I imagine the TV stuff pays the bills.
