    Kikujiro

    ★★★★

    Takeshi Kitano is one of those artists whose films I’m instantly excited to watch. I just know that, for 90-120 minutes, I’m in for a rewarding experience. this is somehow the longest of his films I’ve seen yet. I say “somehow” because the pacing, the layout, was sorta mind blowing for me in that, at the 80-minute mark, I could’ve sworn this was over, more on that in a bit though...

    biopics never work for me. they just come off as lazy, half-hearted recreations of the truth, and almost never give you a complete picture anyways. idk man, I’d prefer to just read a book about what actually happened, and what the Panthers/Fred Hampton were really about. this film is just way…
