Takeshi Kitano ranked

I think there's a very fine line between laughter and violence. Takeshi the director says this all the time, "Laughter and violence are both spontaneous." He also says "Laughter is very violent." If you look at it that way, this film can be wall-to-wall comedy or serious drama from beginning to end.
