Glory to the Filmmaker!

Add to Watchlist

This Japanese comedy cuts through multiple layers of traditional genres, in thought provoking ways. Takeshi Kitano, playing a version of his real life self, is a screenwriter with no current output, gripped by writer's block. In desperation to produce a new screenplay, Takeshi jumps from one style to another. To try his hand at new genres, he does black and white mysteries, a regular romance, a horror story, and martial arts action stories. Each attempt ends worse than the one previous. Then he hits on it, a science fiction film called The Promised Day, which he plans to significantly modify.
