Dir. Takeshi Kitano. Japan. 1990, 97 mins. 35mm. With Takeshi Kitano, Yurei Yanagi, Yuriko Ishida. In Japanese with English subtitles. In his second film, action auteur Takeshi “Beat” Kitano shows his masterful ability to blend drama and hilarity. An unlucky gas station attendant belongs to a losing junior baseball team whose coach has been captured by the local yakuza. The attendant and a friend travel to Okinawa seeking revenge; instead they tumble into a crazy night of karaoke, sex, gun dealing, and flower gathering, with Kitano in top form playing a mercurial gangster.
