I think there is a some of kitano in kill bill: when hanzo yells at the kid, for example.
"In Serbia a lot of people hate me because they want to westernise, not understanding that the western world is bipolar, with very good things and very bad things. Since they don't have experience of the west, they even believe that western shit is pie."

Yes, I discovered a lot of elements that Tarantino "borrowed" from the new japanese cinema, also a lot from Miike, for instance. Though I didn't like Kill Bill at all, but that is another issue.

PS: you can watch the trailer for Zatoichi at http://office-kitano.co.jp/zatoichi/trailer_main.html

Well, if I can comfort you: my sister liked it a lot...almost everyone liked it a lot. I don't understand that.

But Kill Bill is soooooo great. As is Kitano and his films. Dolls stands as one of the best movies I've seen this year. Greatly directed and performed, it just broke my heart at times. I think it's a very violent film, not in the traditional Kitano way, but more on an emotional level. It's great and it's my favourite Takeshi Kitano film so far.

I saw dolls yesterday.
Though it was very good, I was expecting more from the reviews that I had read here.
Photography is excelent, it is, visually, the years' most beautiful film.

What was missing was, I think, the kitano dark humour and graphic violence (because it was really violent emotionally). I sure hope that kitano hasn't matured that much

He hasn't. I think his next film is quite the opposite of Dolls. How's it called? Zatoi... Zay... Err... Too lazy to check IMDB   :?

Well, I'm going to buy a kitano dvd box set: hana-bi; kikujiro and brother.
Do you consider that to be his top three.
