Reviews

due gang yakuza relativamente in pace tra loro si spartiscono il territorio della citta'. fino a quando un affiliato (interpretato dallo stesso miike) viene ucciso dal clan rivale. sara' l'elemento scatenante di una serie di ritorsioni, vendette e giochi di potere. nonostante la trama fin troppo semplice, miike spiazza lo spettatore ancora una volta, realizzando un film lento e doloroso, una girandola di situazioni piene di vendette e solitudini che conducono irrimediabilmente verso l'autodistruzione.

Format:DVD
Agitator (2001) is one of director Takashi Miike's grittier entries into the Yakuza sub-genre; having far more in common with films such as Shinjuku Triad Society (1996) and Rainy Dog (1997), as opposed to the more colourful likes of Fudoh: The New Generation (1998) and Ichi the Killer (2001). As with the vast majority of Yakuza crime dramas, the issues dealt with here include honour, loyalty, power and betrayal, with Agitator focusing principally on the two conflicting worlds of the Yakuza; with the sharp-suited crime lords doing business behind the closed doors of opulent boardrooms on one side, and the street level thugs who enjoy the giddy rush of excitement provided to them by their criminal existence on the other. As the film progresses the two worlds collide with violent and catastrophic consequences, as Miike reigns in much of his more elaborate directorial flourishes to give us a film that is, for the most part, sharp, realistic and entirely believable.

At two and a half hours in length the film is a definite crime epic, however, whereas the implication of such a tag might suggest the grand, operatic elegance of Coppola's The Godfather (1972) or the intricate balance of characters and time presented to us by Scorsese's Goodfellas (1991), Agitator is instead a low-key and entirely low-budget production; focusing on a small collection of reoccurring characters shot through with an unglamorous and unpretentious sense of immediacy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! 23 Nov 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
This film is possibly my favourite miike film. It is maybe a little long but every second is enjoyable. It doesn't contain any of the dark comedy or surreal moments present in most of his other films but chooses to show a yakuza gang war in a very serious way. I would recommend this film to anyone with a love of yakuza films but beware it is not your classic miike film.
