CULT FAVORITES FROM FILM MOVEMENT
VIOLENT COP
Restored DCP!

VIOLENT COP
1989, Film Movement, 103 min, Japan, Dir: Takeshi Kitano

Originally a TV comedian, “Beat” Takeshi Kitano defied expectations to make his directorial debut with this tough-as-nails crime drama. He stars as Azuma, a police detective notorious for roughing up suspects, whose ruthless tactics become indistinguishable from those of the gangster he pursues after his sister is kidnapped by yakuza. VIOLENT COP showcases the spare shooting style, nihilistic worldview and deadpan humor that have made Kitano one of Japan’s most revered contemporary filmmakers. In Japanese with English subtitles.
