Takeshi Kitano Quotes

  4. For me comedy and violence has a lot in common. Just as you expect, comedy always lurks behind the most unexpected of circumstances.
  5. I intentionally shoot violence to make the audience feel real pain. I have never and I will never shoot violence as if it’s some kind of action video game.

  12. I do all these various activities like painting and writing, comedy and films probably because not that I’m good at everything but because I’m not good at any of these things.
  13. I always come to conclusions very fast. Well, that is one way of thinking, and the other way would be that I lack the necessary perseverance to stick to one thing that really fits me. I don’t know if it’s a good thing or bad thing.
