Caught this during a flight...

Outrage: Final Chapter (Japan, 2017) [Flight] - 3/5

Stylish but incredibly convoluted yakuza film is probably the best Kitano can do these days. Writer/director/actor Kitano has made himself play second fiddle in his own movie, with the main focus being on an extremely complex series of secret alliances, double crossings and double crossings that are planned don't have time to happen because someone else already double crossed someone, most of which have little to do with Kitano's character. Kitano's tough guy charisma still works, however, and there are moments of violence that drop the jaw. The human depth of his 90s masterpieces is long gone, as are the magical Joe Hisaishi scores, replaced by too much talking (and yelling) but at least this is a somewhat decent yakuza film with proper production values, unlike the garbage other Japanese filmmakers are putting out these days.
