Fireworks is an interesting film from the lens of Takeshi Kitano. The movie is about a circle of cops who's lives are changed forever by a violent episode that has scarred each and everyone of them. It's an interesting film and Kitano injects some of his own personal tragedy into it. Kitano's usual players are featured in this film along with himself playing the lead. The camera work is fluid and the direction is sharp and the imagery is amazing. A true work of art. I was very surprised by this film because I was disappointed with Sonitaine and I was a little leery about watching this one. Boy was I impressed. Highly impressive work from the man
Kitano is an amazing director and actor. He can accomplish more with body language than most actors can with twenty pages of script. The paintings in the films are from his own personal works. I highly recommend this film.
