048: SFFCH – Sonatine

048 Sonatine SF

Once again we’ve gone Japanese as ‘Spoiler Filled Film Conversation, Hooray’ decides to have a spoilery chat and review of ‘Sonatine’, the ‘Beat’ Takeshi Kitano movie from 1993. Listen in as Rich, Ant and Abi waffle on as usual, this time pondering the innate stillness of Takeshi himself, his comedic origins, the ambiguities in the ending, and the general association of yakuza with terrible fashion sense in pop culture. They nobly resist the urge to babble about ‘Takeshi’s Castle’ and Rich wonders at the similarities between the beach games sequence with a game he’s just been playing. If you want more detail you will just have to listen! (Ep 48, Rec 2014)
