Film Review: Outrage Coda (2017) by Takeshi Kitano

“I still have something to do.”

“Don’t be too reckless.” Shortly after the release of “Beyond Outrage”, the first sequel he filmed to this day, Kitano stated how he wanted to conclude his modern day-narrative on the yakuza. Besides the financial success of the last two films, a conclusion seems to be the logical next step after focusing on the hierarchy within the underworld (“Outrage”) and its evolution to a business (“Beyond Outrage”). The last entry into the series would be centered around the individual and highlight the lasting consequences of Otomo’s actions and those of the other characters.

Despite their roots within the cinema of directors like Ken Takakura or Kinji Fukasaku, Kitano emphasizes how he regards his films as different from these traditions. Even though his approach remains stylized, the image of the yakuza as an

Venice Announces 2017 Lineup, Including ‘The Shape of Water,’ ‘Suburbicon,’ ‘mother!,’ and Many More
Will 2017 be the year that Venice gets its king-making mojo back? After a steady run of debuting recent best picture winners — from “Spotlight” to “Birdman” — the festival missed out on last year’s big winner, “Moonlight,” which bowed at Telluride. This year’s lineup is a promising one, and while it’s still very early in the process, it’s difficult not to pick through today’s announcement of the festival’s slate and not search for the big contenders.

As was previously announced, the festival will open with Alexander Payne’s social satire “Downsizing,” starring Matt Damon and Kristen Wiig. The festival will also play home to the premiere of the Netflix original “Our Souls at Night,” as part of their planned tribute to stars Robert Redford and Jane Fonda. Annette Bening will lead the competition jury, ending an 11-year succession of male jury chiefs.

Kitano's Outrage Coda: New Trailer and Poster

I've fallen behind on my Outrage, I'm afraid, but here's a new trailer and poster for Outrage Coda. It's the third installment in what's become a series for Kitano Takeshi, following the original in 2010, which I quite enjoyed, and Outrage Beyond (2012), which I have yet to see. The story follows Ootomo, "who was stubbed in the jail in the last chapter of this franchise. Ootomo gets involved with new Yakuza battles after he comes back to the Yakuza society," according to the synopsis at IMDb. I'm sure we'll learn more in the next few months. The film is heading for theatrical release in Japan on October 7, 2017. Watch the trailer below and also enjoy the full-sized poster (you can click to embiggen)....

Takeshi Kitano Gets Ruthless In New Trailer For ‘Outrage Coda’

In 2010, Takeshi Kitano returned to the yakuza genre with “Outrage,” a grim, violent, and cynical look at the world of Japanese gangsters. The film played at Cannes, where it received very good notices, and it was successful enough to spawn a sequel two years later with “Outrage Beyond.” I haven’t kept up with the series, which is now getting ready to close with “Outrage Coda,” but it looks like fans will get a healthy helping of Kitano at his wildest.
