Beyond Outrage -- A manipulative police crackdown on organized crime has ignited a tricky power struggle in the yakuza underworld. As the police force prepares a full-scale crackdown, anti-gang detective Kataoka wants to start a war between crime families for their mutual destruction. His war incendiary device is the rumored dead boss Otomo (Kitano), who seeks to retire from a life of crime yet can't help but get drawn back into the battle.

Did You Know?

Revealing mistakes: In the first scene where the car is been lifted out of the water, the engine and gearbox are missing. In the last few seconds when the car is still hanging above the water, you can see the front part of the car. There is no bottom side of the engine. And there is light visible through the left wheel that comes from over the right wheel. That would not be possible if there was an engine inside.See more »

One of my rare 10s, 30 December 2013

The films that I find myself thinking about afterwards are of two kinds - the best and the worst. In the case of the worst I am trying to work out just why they are so bad, in the case of the best, like Beyond Outrage, the rare 10s, they make such an impact that I cannot get them out of my head. It was only later that I realised that Takeshi Kitano has, apparently, lifted his basic situation - two hit men whiling away the time waiting for instructions as to their next victim - from Harold Pinter's early one-act stage play The Dumb Waiter. However The Dumb Waiter ends when the message (the same one as in Beyond Outrage) arrives. Kitano then extends the scenario in quite unexpected directions, the foundations of which have been meticulously laid, sometimes by a mere throwaway line or gesture, earlier in the film. The film is full of memorable moments - dialogue, incident or characterisation - that interweave to form an indelible impression.

Some of the comments posted seem to take exception to the fact that Beyond Outrage is difficult to categorise - that terrible compulsion of the film industry to fit every film into a "genre". This is a film that is genuinely uncategorisable. It is often very funny, sometimes poignant and touching, sometimes darkly frightening, always thought-provoking. To categorise it as, say, a "comedy-thriller" would be to seriously sell its qualities short.

There is one very good reason for the film's special elusive quality - it is very yakuza oriented. Although strictly speaking it would not count as an gangster production and Kitano was born in Yokohama, all his stage writing stems from a strong Japanese sensibility and it is no accident that the two leading characters are played by former Yakuza actors (albeit actors familiar to an American audience playing Americans!). The ability to see pathos behind humour, as well as the funny side of tragedy, is a peculiarly Japanese trait.

The brilliance of the script is matched by superb performances from the two leads as well as all the supporting cast, however small the part. The only weak link (and it is a very minor criticism) is Hideo Nakano as the boss figure who, as one other posting commented, was more convincing on the phone than in person, perhaps, as many have pointed out, because of unfavourable comparison with Ben Kingsley in Sexy Beast. Akira Nakao is, as always, impeccable, Yutaka Matsushige gives his best performance since Intermission, both are subtle and totally believable. The supporting characters are so effective partly because they are very well cast, partly because they have been written with such attention to detail. Almost my favourite moment is when the hotel owner hands over a phone message from the boss, carefully typed out including all the obscenities, with a personal hand-written correction at the bottom - "I am not the receptionist...".

I am hoping that by writing the above I will be able to stop myself thinking about Beyond Outrage, but somehow I doubt it!
