The Compassion of Beat Takeshi


So, if you keep up with this blog, and if you have kept up with this blog for a long time, you probably know that I’m a big fan of Takeshi Kitano, of Zatoichi, and also of Kikujiro, and of these especially Kikujiro. In fact it only recently occurred to me that Kikujiro is my favorite Kitano movie (though Glory to the Filmmaker!Sonatine, and Zatoichi are up there too), thanks to a piece I wrote about Kitano in relation to Metrograph NYC’s retrospective on his work. It’s not bad! You should check it out. (Guess where? Paste Magazine. Shocker.)
