The culmination of Takeshi’s Outrage trilogy.

Takeshi Kitano’s name has now become a byword for the yakuza genre, gritty and violent films that pit duty against personal happiness. This film brings to a culmination his Outrage trilogy with foot soldier Otomo (played by Kitano himself) caught up in an escalating gang war, a labyrinthine intrigue of double- and triple-cross, in which old men with dyed hair manoeuvre for advantage until Otomo appears to cut through the double-dealing like a knife. From the first images of a black limo drifting through the night reflecting the neon light, we’re in a neo-noir world of betrayal with one man for whom honour still burns with a quiet intensity.
