Sonatine Regissert av Takeshi Kitano
It eventually sinks into the kind of dead-end realization that most of these films reach, that grim anti-epiphany that escape is not possible and that death is the only release from a life of crime. But even so the film never plays this understanding for miserable reflection but callous dark comedy.

Kitano’s style—which makes extensive use of off-screen action and sound—gives off a vibe that’s one part sincere melancholy, one part absurdist nihilism.

Each movie becomes one long Kuleshov experiment. Or a Bresson action-comedy. For me, the thrill of watching a Kitano film like Sonatine, perhaps the best example, derives from the tension between my near complete sympathy for one or two of the principal characters—partly, or even largely, because I am able to invest the blank characters with my own feelings—and my sense that those laconic, mysterious characters, like me, will forever remain indecipherable, wholly other.
