Outrage: Way of the Yakuza

Renaissance man Takeshi Kitano peruses Japan’s mean streets.


Thriller

Rod Lott
A pact is worthless when it exists between two criminal families. Piss one off, and war breaks out. In his 15th directorial outing, Outrage: Way of the Yakuza, Takeshi Kitano examines one such flare-up and its ever-brutal consequences. The gangster world marks material he's delved into before, but so has Martin Scorsese, and Kitano is arguably Japan's equivalent.

New York Stories

One outta three ain’t bad, when that one is Scorsese.


Drama

Rod Lott
I have fond memories of seeing John Ritter in Blake Edwards’ 1989 sex comedy, Skin Deep, in theaters ... because right after it was over, two friends and I snuck into the movie we really wanted to see: another newcomer, New York Stories.

Friends in high places


CFN

Gazette staff
Oscar-winning director Martin Scorsese is known for some of cinema’s all-time finest tough-guy films — Goodfellas, Taxi Driver, Raging Bull — so when he ventures outside his crime-minded comfort zone, it raises eyebrows. (And have you seen his eyebrows?) News of him potentially directing a television special starring Yukon’s favorite son Garth Brooks would have CFN doing just that, but we got our brows waxed and plucked so thin, they barely move. Anyhow, according to The Las Vegas Sun, Brooks just wrapped up a three-year stint performing in Sin City, and real-estate mogul Steve Wynn says Marty “said he’d love to” shoot it for all of America’s eyeballs.
