Re: Last movie impressions

Battle Royale
I'm coming a bit late to this movie from 2000. It plays in a near-future/alternative Japan where the older generations are so terrified by teenagers that they send them to an island to kill each other off. One scene having the teacher, played by Takeshi Kitano, wonder how he should handle students: he used to beat them up to get them in line, but since that is not acceptable anymore he just doesn't know how to deal with them. I like the movie. It moved back and forth between being uncomfortable, hilarious, juvenile, shocking and thoughtful. I'd say it's a must see, if you can stomach the idea of children killing children.
Currently playing: Snake? SNAKE? SNAAAAKE?!?
