    Seen it in a theater. Marvelous and extremely sad at the same time. But it's 100 per cent truthful of today's Human condition.

    ★★★★½

    Considering the premises (Moretti says "Non sono imparziale", I am not impartial) it's near perfect. I wish it had more images/videos from the era.

    Terrifying Girls' High School: Lynch Law Classroom

    ★★★★½

    One of Norifumi Suzuki best films, "Terrifying Girls’ High School: Lynch Law Classroom" is full of anarchoid energy and very well directed. You can sense a disdain for authority that recurs in many of his films, but this time he really doesn't save "anyone". There isn't a single scene that might be considered a "filler"- all of them are conceived to grab your attention like only the best (exploitation) movies can do. The musical score is also very well done and placed. I personally prefer the Sukeban films, but I can't deny this is Pinky Violence at its peak.

    ★★★★

    With this great ending of the outrage trilogy, Kitano shows once again his special way of making yakuza movies: the intricate plottings really are descendent of the best battles without honor and humanity films but the detached look at killing is all his own. The ending didn't seem fitting though and this prevented the film to have one more half-star. Like Nathan Stuart I too noticed the homage to Hokuriku Proxy War. Hope Takeshi won't stop churning yakuza films and who knows, being older, he may return in a powerful Oyabun role in the future...
