Three films from Japanese filmmaker Takeshi ’Beat’ Kitano. ’Takeshis’ (2005) is a freeform, surrealist musing on the meaning of self. Takeshi himself plays both leads: self-important celebrity director Beat and his humble lookalike Kitano, a shop assistant and wannabe actor whose fantasies form the main action of the film. When the paths of the two men cross, Kitano starts to hallucinate about becoming Beat. Image and sound transcend plot lines as they unite to express the intertwined thoughts and dreams of the two central characters. Takeshi revives the Japanese fictional action anti-hero Zatoichi in the violent and bloody swashbuckling samurai adventure ’Zatoichi’ (2003). Zatoichi (played by Takeshi himself) may be blind, but he is also an incredibly gifted and precise swordsman. When the ruthless Ginzo gang, with the help of the legendary Hattori, mercilessly take over a remote mountain town, Zatoichi and his friend Shinkichi must do everything in their considerable powers to stop them. ’Dolls’ (2002) comprises three short stories inspired by Bunraku puppet theatre. The first story concerns a young couple roaming the countryside, bound by a red cord. In the second, an elderly yakuza returns to the park where he used to meet the girlfriend he abandoned. In the third story, when a pop star becomes a recluse after an accident, one of his fans visits him to prove the extent of her devotion.
