There are some directors with which - once we've seen a score of their films - we begin to feel pretty intimate; begin to feel comfortable with what they offer artistically and almost think (in our arrogance) that we know them.

Beat consistently surprises in that he never ceases to keep his audience at arm's length. As I've watched his work, I've been by turns touched, sickened, excited, amazed, repulsed, and grateful; not necessarily in that order.

With "Takeshi's," I feel like I can hear him mumbling, face a-twitch, 'You think you know me? Heh. Bagge-ro!'
