Director Takeshi Kitano, center, and producer Masayuki Mori pose on the red carpet as they arrive for the screening of their film "Outrage" in competition at the 63rd Cannes Film Festival on Monday night. "Outrage," which is about a bloody gang war in Tokyo, is Kitano's first yakuza film since he made "Brothers" in 2000. Kitano admitted that "Outrage" is likely to be controversial, but he insisted he is no expert on the yakuza. The screening drew groans and sniggers from viewers during scenes that included flying fingers, plunging chopsticks, a nasty bit of dentistry and the intertwining of a head, a rope and a luxury sedan.© Japan Today
