Shark Biplane

Remember yesterday when I asked the universe for more visual art by film directors?

"Beat" Takeshi Kitano delivers:


Hehehe. Check out some other pieces from his new show here.  We need more art with wit and irreverence, and less that's trying to Make A Statement.

I don't know a ton of Kitano's work, but his 2003 revival of Zatôichi is a gem, and I liked Brother, his first and only American-made film, though it left a lot of his fans rather dissatisfied. And of course, there's Takeshi's Castle, the basis for the camp classic re-edit Most Extreme Elimination Challenge.
