Egyptian Theatre

7:30pm

1989, Film Movement, 103 min. Action/Crime. Originally a TV comedian, Takeshi Beat Kitano defied expectations to make his directorial debut with this tough-as-nails crime drama. He stars as Azuma, a police detective notorious for roughing up suspects, whose ruthless tactics become indistinguishable from those of the gangster he pursues after his sister is kidnapped by yakuza. VIOLENT COP showcases the spare shooting style, nihilistic worldview and deadpan humor that have made Kitano one of Japans most revered contemporary filmmakers. In Japanese with English subtitles.
