Part of the Japan Society's yakuza film series.

"Beat" Takeshi Kitano is back... to a world without heroes, "as violent, amoral and misanthropic as a Jacobean play" (Maggie Lee, The Hollywood Reporter ). Outrage is Kitano's first yakuza film since Brother (2000) and arguably his best in a decade. Raging with the raw power of his early works (A Violent Cop , Sonatine ), though the style is less minimalist. In fact, Kitano's representation of internecine gang rivalry and imploding power structure stands up to Kinji Fukasaku's seminal Battle Without Honor series in complexity and unsentimental attitude, with humor as mean and dry as a straight-up martini. The filming of violence, too, is exemplary, and enough to shame more frenzied filmmakers, with the camera largely keeping its distance rather than joining in with the bloodshed.

$12, $9 for members, students and seniors.
