October 30, 2009
I’ve recently been told that Takeshi Kitano, the brilliant director/actor who has starred/directed/both such glorious films as the ridiculously violent Zatoichi, the gloriously violent Battle Royale, and the surreal (with big hints of violence) Hana-Bi (aka Fireworks), is also responsible for one of the best game shows ever – ‘Takeshi’s Castle’!
Is it just me or does this sound like the sort of thing which requires an unnecessary Western remake? I now live in expectation of the day it turns out Ken Loach invented ‘Countdown’.
Or an American version where Quentin Tarantino invents ‘America’s Next Top Model’.
