Director: Takeshi Kitano
"As violent, amoral and misanthropic as a Jacobean play... arguably [Kitano's] best film in a decade." - Hollywood Reporter
Legendary director Takeshi Kitano (Hana-Bi, MIFF 1998) returns to the Yakuza genre he has made his own, starring as Otomo, a Yakuza subordinate ordered to bring a rival crime gang into line. But as Otomo's intervention triggers a vicious cycle of retribution, hidden agendas and questionable motives pull all sides into a downward spiral of doublecrosses and reprisals.
A blackly comic miracle of confronting violence that distills the Yakuza genre down to its essence - greed, fear and power - the stylish and gruesome Outrage is a tremendous return to form for the hallowed Kitano.
