  Is there a definitive return to the roots or just a temporary trip? In any case, Takeshi Kitano has Outrage again one of those Yakuza movies shot for which he is especially at the beginning of his career has become known. However, despite its typical Kitano film waiting manuscript then but with some innovations that it in any case to an interesting selection, although sometimes make very explicit brutal experience. Otomo (Takeshi Kitano) is the boss of a small clan within the Yakuza and work closely with the Sanno-kai-clan of the Chairman Sekuichi (Soichiro Kitamura) is connected. The head of the Yakuza ring is angry with his underboss Ikemoto (Jun Kunimura), who united behind his back in prison friendship with the boss (Renji Ishibashi) Murase of the competing clan. To get rid of the existing friendship oath, instructed his friend Ikemoto Otomo order to regulate the delicate opportunity discreet. What the suspect but not both: They are just pawns in a game of power and domination, and come off with their behavior a spiral of violence that will survive at the end hardly anyone and the Claims have been redrawn. Although spoken in Outrage for Kitano conditions as much as in a very little work before you get some time in the course of history the impression that the number of punches and shots to the spoken sentences by far predominates. It still sees Kitano, to mix extreme violence and moments of comedy and cynical humor in a unique mix that in some moments is truly under the skin and some of the viewers on the next visit a dentist or ENT specialist should prepare a queasy feeling. The previously set standards in this field scene from Marathon Man may be classified at least in this regard in the future more in the category “Kids”. Extraordinary is also the music assembled here a collage using sound strange abstract patterns that result in only two places in an almost melodic acting ecstatic drum rhythm. This indeed fine in the sum but still significant changes compared to earlier works Kitano are also found in the character repertoire of Outrage again: So striking example, that the hitherto always dominated gangster in this new work Kitano no longer the old composure and radiate coolness. is almost permanently cursed herumgepöbelt and freaked out, falling mutual insults and fisticuffs, demonstrating that the manners and rules of former yakuza days belong to long past that this is a time of change is described, has become in the friendship and loyalty completely obsolete. No wonder, then, if Otomo not the ruthlessness of the business escapes. Even in prison for him to get his bills even more. The end for a while no less brutal, but at least somewhat loyal gangster, who simply does not fit into the new times. Despite his rough humor and his undeniable comic moments Outrage is also a (quite loud and rumplige) ballad, a farewell to the good old days and also a harbinger of change, not only – as is assumed – the Yakuza, but all areas of communal covered. It blows an increasingly harsh wind, the old values – be they good or bad – sweeps away indiscriminately. (Joachim Kurz)
