Outrage (2010)

Cannes Film Festival 2010

Palme d'Or
Takeshi Kitano

Magnet Releasing
Directed by Takeshi Kitano
My rating: 2 stars out of 4

Yakuza in modern Tokyo kill each other in a never-ending struggle for power. A gang war is purposefully initiated in a staged shakedown at a nightclub involving rival gang members.  Rather than a film driven by plot and character, director Takeshi decides to exploit the violence. Slickly filmed but ultimately numbing.
