Television series

Rod Lott
Fans won't need much convincing (if at all) to plunk down their choice of currency for a purchase of Mystery Science Theater 3000: Volume XXIII (that's "23," dummies), because by now, Shout! Factory's rep for packing these boxes with genuine care and irresistible extras is rock-solid.

Outrage: Way of the Yakuza

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.
