    Hana-bi features what might be my favourite edit in cinema. Beat Takeshi lights a cigarette, the scene cuts to a man being gunned down. The unexpectedness, the suddenness, is joyous. The sound of the lighter, the pop-pop of the gun firing. It's a little marvel, the cinema of cool. Tarantino wishes he came up with it in his dreams.

    Like a fashion shoot directed by Count Dracula. Bloody, intoxicating, unique.

    Andrea Arnold's masterpiece, her Night of the Hunter, her Apocalypse Now. FUCKING INCREDIBLE.
