Critic Reviews for Takeshis'
Bold yet bland, this dreamy survey of all things Kitano sends several bullets into his past and puts a question mark on his future.
An entirely useless artifact for anyone not already familiar with Kitano's previous eleven pictures.
Takeshi Kitano's crazy, weird, indulgent, breathtaking, strangely titled fantasy is as entertaining as it is puzzling -- a marvelous movie about movies with a sense of humor and a surreal streak.
Audience Reviews for Takeshis'
Man,that was rock-bottom.Narcissistic to the bone,that's all I have to say.Kitano,you better not disappoint me next time,shit...and why did you have to erupt from the ashes of...twin reality?Orchestrated narrative without the core,veins,hidden sign?Just plain,"amusing" images of you...and you?
The strangest Kitano I've seen. As always, this has random bursts of stylish violence. It's like a ride thru Kitano's mind:looks cool, but never makes much sense.
Excellent film. This film is essential to anyone who is interested in what makes Takeshi Kitano tick as an artist. The different ways he views himself while making the movie in his head while we watch him make the movie he is thinking of would leave any audience member scratching their head. But I've thought of this film a lot since seeing it and I think time might shoot it to the top of my favourtie Kitano films.
