Takeshis', DVD  DVD


Cult Japanese filmmaker Takeshi 'Beat' Kitano directs this freeform, surrealist musing on the meaning of self.

Takeshi himself plays both leads: self-important celebrity director Beat and his humble lookalike Kitano, a shop assistant and wannabe actor whose fantasies form the main action of the film.

When the paths of the two men cross, Kitano starts to hallucinate about becoming Beat.

Image and sound transcend plot lines as they unite to express the intertwined thoughts and dreams of the two central characters.
