Sometime in the near future, near anarchy has broken out in Japan. The government responds by passing the Battle Royale Act, a piece of legislation mandating that a group of young people - and only young people - are forcibly marooned together on an island, and forced to kill each other until one survivor is left. If more than one is still alive after three days, every survivor will be killed. The film follows a class of 14-year-olds who believe they're on a school trip, when they are drugged. They wake up, in a derelict building on a deserted island; they're each given enough provisions for three days, a weapon, and the ultimatum. This version contains eight minutes of additional material not included in the theatrical release

Sono otoko kyobo ni tsuki Violent cop by Bīto Takeshi( Visual )

21 editions published between 1989 and 2009 in 5 languages and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his first two features actor and television personality Takeshi transplanted the American police action genre into contemporary Japan. In Violent Cop, as well as directing, Takeshi plays the main role of a lone cop, Azuma, whose unorthodox methods and unyielding moral code are not to the liking of his superiors. When the murder of a colleague reveals police corruption, Azuma acts on his own against the yakuza he knows to be responsible. What Takeshi brings to familiar material is his distinctive persona as an actor - in turn deadpan, cruelly sadistic, stubborn and droll - and style as a director - off-beat pacing, unexpected outbreaks of violence and a cruel sense of humour. The Japanese title translates as 'Watchout! This man is wild'

"In the tradition of Central Station comes KIKUJIRO the highly acclaimed new film from Takeshi "Beat" Kitano, the award-winning director of Fireworks (Hana-Bi) and Sonatine. Lonely nine-year-old Masao leaves Tokyo in search of his mother, a woman he's never met. He's accompanied on his journey across the Japanese countryside by surly, middle-aged petty crook Kikujiro (Kitano), who is none too happy being the chaperone. When Kikujiro gambles away all of Masao's travel money, the two must rely on their wits and the kindness of colorful strangers. Along the way, as the two share a series of wild and unpredictable adventures, they end up at a destination that neither of them could have imagined."--Envase
