A Kitano Classic - Boiling Point review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
31/03/2009

Boiling Point tells the story of two members of a junior baseball team who get on the wrong side of the local yakuza. After their baseball coach is beaten up by the yakuza heavies, the two boys decide to travel to Okinawa to buy a gun in order to get revenge. While in Okinawa they befriend Uehara, a yakuza outcast who decides to settle a few old gangland scores and joins them on their quest for revenge. Boiling Point is in reality the first proper Takeshi Kitano film as both writer and director, and contains Kitano's renowned dry humour and stunning cinematography which is seen in later films. Tragic, funny, exciting and challenging, 'Boiling Point' sets the high standard of Kitano's subsequent films.
