A couple of beat takeshi yakusa movies: ‘outrage’ and ‘beyond outrage’

The third is disappointing, but I enjoyed the first two. I think I posted a screen capture of one of the more prominent actors in it – Quentin used him as the Boss Who Gets Beheaded – basically telling everyone they were stupid fucks.

Why is it that in almost all of these shows a character can be found injured in broad daylight and the next scene is the cops and ambulances carting them off in the dark of night?

Simple, all crimes are committed at 4pm.

Duh.

Well that was an interesting show, not too many tropes.

Now watching "Midnight Mass" which I figure involves a vampire, given the lifts from Dracula.

I should have added that his take on Zatoichi is excellent. Even has Takenobu Asano in it.

Prescription for Murder starring Gene Barry and Peter Falk.

Made for TV movie that puts modern cinema to shame. The dialogue almost always has subtext. The camera tells the story.

It started the career of Columbo. I rewatched it over Christmas with three generations of family. Try putting the phone down and really enjoying it though. It was made to be watched and it's almost disgusting how well it's done.

Now watching The Haunting of Hill House. Not sure about this one. Don't care about the characters.
