In addition to 'Perhaps Love' the other DVD i bought in CWB last week was Takeshi Kitano's "
trailer), which like many of his films is rather
... meaning its one of those movies that is hard to even describe a plot for. Basically its something like this:>Takeshi
Kitano plays two characters in the film, one is a version of himself
(famous movie star, TV personality, etc) and the other is a slow

movies and I still had a lot of trouble getting all the allusions to
