Outrage Beyond & Apres Mai

Sep 3 | Venice Film Festival

Outrage Beyond, Japan, Takeshi Kitano, director & main actor, gangster movie in Tokyo, action packed & at times violent, the Godfather style, the only film so far which Anna & disagree on.
Rating: 8/10.

Apres Mai, French by Olivier Assayas, set in late 60s, 18 year old growing up with radical views, moves between France, Italy & London, a youth film of the times with love interest thrown in, something we all knew about.
Rating: 6/10.

One thing to remember is that many of the large studios do not enter competitions for fear of not winning & ruining their PR, so you must admire the large boys for putting themselves at risk.
