I like to do today, in the section I confess: I can not stand one subgroup such films come we can not see, which cost us watch for the first time, but also encompass an artist to idolize. I have therefore decided to choose for this post "Kantoku · Banzai!" ("Glory to the Filmmaker!"), The film that the great Takesi Kitano conducted in 2007 and personally I think a real slip, if not creative failure within of the pristine race director.
I consider myself a true lover of films of the filmmaker Japan. Although his ego takes on too many times to overreach in their claims, I think his inexperience in academic film is one of their best assets and you have total freedom to create films as you please. In addition Kitano was fortunate that when he made his first film as director in the late 90's, "Sono otoko, Kyobo or tsuki" ("Violent Cop"), he was seen as an icon of the masses for their television work for so the producer gave him complete freedom to shape his ideas on the big screen.
From then until today, which is demonstrated by the director who is an expert on the yakuza film, with graphic violence in their work and especially with a very unique assembly of which he is responsible. However, I believe that greatness is that Kitano has been able to go from one genre to another without his style and his genius from being resentful, as is the case with "Kikujiro no natsu" or "Dolls", which showed I could make great movies without any mobsters involved.
However I am not here to talk about his good films, but poor, of which I can not stand. In this group I include "Kantoku · Banzai!". Personally I think Kitano changed its way of doing movies, and especially of deeds, after which in 2003 premiered "Zatoichi." Do not say this because this is the best movie of all his movies, at least for me it is, but because it meant an end of cycle along with all his previous films which showed great originality in their stories and especially creative level . However, since then seems to have stagnated or even last year had to turn back to the yakuza films to come out well, but to no avail.
I think this last period, which only saves "Akiresu to kame", "Kantoku · Banzai!" Is undoubtedly the worst. Since we showed in his time trailer on a movie about himself, his career and an insight from all the movies he had done before. Kitano plays himself in a moment of your life where creativity is gone, and will make every effort to find it. For it is moving across genres, from horror to historical drama through the science fiction, you find one that suits you, or to be good enough to dedicate an entire film. So we have a collage where the only thing that matters is the ego of the artist, showing in what state is no creativity and above all see how it performs from a movie.
All this, this whole idea as banal and the set is empty, wrapped with moments of humor almost more empty if possible, with obvious jokes and gags to look like simpletons all only a movie of absurdist humor, something Kitano is a genius. And it may be so, not because the 94 and made a film of this style, "Minn-yatteruka" ("Getting Any?") Where this type of comedy was the predominant but all that was subordinate to a story and a whole, however absurd it seems. However, in the film in question, it seems that all that matters is to get your ego to the fore, and create a movie out of nothing about nothing.
Kitano certainly deserved a slap on the wrist for this film, but we also have to thank legacy we have so many great works. For now, I hope you get out of the creative slump that is, even if it means resorting to realize what will be the first sequel of his career: "Autoreiji 2." Will her return to the state of grace that has made him one of the best directors today? "I hope so.
