  1. Mellow Dude's rating of the film Outrage

  2. Nick Schwab's rating of the film Outrage

    Not about characterization nor dramatic dimension at all, but about balances of power, that sadly doesn't fully excite. Kitano's technical elements are exceptional, as is his dark humor, yet the tangled world of Yakuza politics/double crosses grows irksome quickly, being emotionally vacant. The avoidance of storytelling basics for a complicated plot is quite drab. However, there are some good ideas strewn around.

  4. chanandre's rating of the film Outrage

    Why was Otomo knifed in the jail....? I would have cut in the prison scene. Open-ended films are my beach. That Kato was a mofoca. Played all like a fiddle even his boss. This is like Silvio or Paulie having had plotted successfully against Tony Soprano! Kitano you're still on fire!

  5. Luca Soldati's rating of the film Outrage

    La trama è un continuo susseguirsi di tradimenti e scontri interni alla yakuza, delineando un'organizzazione senza scrupoli. Ottimo ritmo e narrazione sempre chiara e appassionante. Il microcosmo trattato viene caratterizzato benissimo. Mole sequenze ottime e bel montaggio. La critica portata avanti alla yakuza non sacrifica l'intrattenimento, anch'esso di qualità. Personaggi ben interpretati che restano impressi

  6. Alvise Narduzzi's rating of the film Outrage

    Ben nota la tendenza di Kitano a girare scene violente, ma forse un pugno ogni circa 10 parole è una media un pò alta. Le scene di violenza sono talmente numerose che passano dall'impressionare a provocare un senso di noiosa ripetizione un pò pedante. Rinnovato è invece il senso della regia del giapponese, che con un formato più ampio dipinge delle scene meravigliose, grazie anche ad una sceneggiatura notevole.

  7. kokeshi's rating of the film Outrage

    Non male. Ma il Kitano degli anni '90 di certo non c'è in questo film. Manca la leale fratellanza, la poesia, il silenzio. I colori. E la struggente colonna sonora.

  8. Christopher M. Jones's rating of the film Outrage

    every Beat Takeshi yakuza flick might have basically the same plot but God damn if this man can't keep surprising us with new ways to fuck up a dude's face

  10. Ethan's rating of the film Outrage

    This would make a great double bill with Sonatine.

  11. weinbrandbabsi's rating of the film Outrage

    I said in another context, that the subject of Kitanos movies is violence in both ways - his characters seem just tokens expressing the movemement of an abstract real, violence. The rigidly hierachical structure of the Yakuza adds the element of power, another 'automatic subject'. The object gaze reserved for the audience makes the sometimes already breathtakingly violent scenes roughen you up a bit.

  12. Jeremiah Johnson's rating of the film Outrage

    I had no idea that Takeshi had a string of yakuza films in the 90s with his distinct style. I liked those better.

  13. Michael Zyx MH Claes's rating of the film Outrage

    En compétition à Cannes, ce film éclaire comme dans Donnie BRASCO, le fonctionnement "bête et discipliné" des mafias (ici yakuzas). Dans ce milieu d'ultra prédateurs, la moindre erreur se paie cher. Et de laver l'affront à perdre le pouvoir, le chemin est très court et les pertes humaines s’amoncellent.

  14. Rocketeam's rating of the film Outrage

    My rating of this movie is very biased cuz I love Yakuza films, good or bad...

  15. vulnicura's rating of the film Outrage

    A fun watch-- there are about a dozen+ characters and almost zero focus/elaboration on any of them, so you end up passively watching the power game without particular investment in any party. Doesn't really give an immersive, emotive experience. Direction is solid and avoids much of the tacky cliche of gangster films.

  16. klofter's rating of the film Outrage

    A motorcade with mob bosses looks like a funeral procession. Yakuza tattoos dotted with blood of a recently deceased look like a deranged still life. Men being shot with automatic weapons look like puppets dancing on a string. A softball game looks like the existential travails of Sisyphus characters. Kitano finds poetry in violence and the mundane. But the film overall is nothing but an empty shell.

  18. creede's rating of the film Outrage

    Too much plot, not enough action.

  19. muse_x's rating of the film Outrage

  20. Cichlisuite's rating of the film Outrage

    3.75 - Not his best but still a Kitano auteur piece and still showing some of his flair and trademarks. The lack of realism in much of the violence was disappointing, characterisation was a bit thin and it was perhaps a little predictable but it was well put together and entertaining. Time to re-watch some early Kitano I think. It's been too long.

  21. Kate Tallent's rating of the film Outrage

    This film about yakuza gangsters offers up a smorgasbord of ways to die. Entertainingly repulsive you have to look away when fingers are being cut off or chopsticks are shoved into an ear but the intrigue is compelling. The yakuza portrayed seem as ambitious as anyone climbing a corporate ladder though the methods employed are a bit Draconian.

  22. Roy Markowitz's rating of the film Outrage

    Hilariously funny (unintentional) this over-heated tale of Yakuza treachery, so brutal and frequent, that it seems more like "What's Up Tiger Lilly?" than a serious look at mobsville Japan. Betrayal- very scary!!

  23. Nicholas Kohut's rating of the film Outrage

    Definitely one of Kitano's many masterworks. His demonstration of savage and brutal Yakuza competition is terrifying. The discipline of his shot language is arresting, time feels irrelevant and the terrible implications of crime syndicate management are magnified with potent sound design and musical structure. Outrage is somewhat of a dance through the illusions of respect and loyalty in Japan's criminal underworld.
