1990, Film Movement, 96 min, Japan, Dir: Takeshi Kitano

When gangsters attack the coach of a small-time baseball team, two players decide to seek revenge in this action-packed and mordantly funny crime film from writer-director Takeshi Kitano. To purchase the requisite firepower, the pair (Masahiko Ono and Minoru Iizuka) travel to Okinawa, where they are befriended by Uehara (Kitano), an unhinged yakuza with his own axes to grind. In Japanese with English subtitles.
