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.
