Outrage Coda

Outrage Coda ★★★★

Kitano taking the plunge towards pure cathartic destruction. No redemption possible on the outmoded notions of honor his Otomo represents, just empty suits doing power plays while he offers hollow retribution. Not quite as funny as the last one, but even more bitter. The Outrage movies represent Kitano at his full decadentist mode, but his form remains sharp as ever. There remains a lot of comedy of gangster manners in the setup scenes and Kitano can still kill people with formal efficiency of a Keaton.
