Sonatine. With Violent Cop and Boiling Point right after it. I was totally stunned and fell in love instantly.
What is your favourite Kitano film that you've seen so far?
That's Hana-Bi. I've seen that about 20 times. My all time favorite movie. A real love story.
Do you prefer him as actor, director or comedian?
Definitely as director. He is a very great actor as well, but he's best in his own movies.
Btw. he's also a great painter. (The pictures in Hana-Bi were made by himself)
What Kitano films do you own? (where he acts or directs)
Sonatine, Boiling Point, Violent Cop, Scene At The Sea, Hana-Bi, Kikujiro, Dolls, Brother, A Scene At the Sea, Zatoichi.
Gonin, Battle Royal.
What is your opinion of Takeshi's Castle?
That was big fun. (Especially for Kitano himself).
