Takeshi Kitano

Its been a quiet Sunday, we’ve watched a great movie directed and starred in by Takeshi Kitano, Zatoichi. The movie is about a blind masseur and gambler who arrives in a village and accidentally gets mixed up with the various local samurai gangsters. Its a movie told with humor, it feels very old but occasionally seems completely contemporary. The traditional costumes are designed by Yohji Yamamoto, the designer whose work we saw last week as part of the Japanese Fashion exhibition at the Barbican.
