Following a series of intriguing filmic experiments, Takeshi Kitani goes back to what comes as easily as breathing to him, the shatteringly violent Yakuza movie. Not for the faint hearted, Outrage fully deserves its title as the director ratchets up the mayhem, gleefully devising ever more gruesome ways to dispatch members of both upper and lower echelons of the Japanese underworld. The plot concerns a struggle for power amongst Tokyo’s Yakuza clans, today just as likely to be playing the stock market as shaking down pachinko parlors, over which the Sanmo-kai clan holds sway in the face of constant betrayal and ever-changing allegiances.

Sanmo-kai chairman Ototomo (played by Kitano himself) learns that his henchman Ikemoto has struck an alliance with the drug-dealing Murase family, and is not best pleased, to say the least. The ensuing retaliation triggers an orgy of killings, territorial invasions and score settling while law enforcement officers, too corrupt to intervene, sit back and enjoy the show. Kitano’s habitual immaculate production values, including clever sound design that enhance the violence, create a brilliant, antiseptic world as hard-edged as the gangsters themselves and make Outrage a return to form that his many devotees will relish.
