Who knew that under the streets of New York, in abandoned subway tunnels, there were communities of vagabonds, drug addicts, and other transients slowly piecing together homes. This intense and fascinating documentary shows what life is like for these people living in the most unusual manner and their struggle to make something of themselves. Marc
Takeshi Kitano's Brother brings a member of the yakuza to L.A. where he runs into the mafia. While not Kitano's best film, namely Zatoichi, Sonatine, or Kikujiro, I still applaud his attempt to bring his style to an American audience. In the end, the story has been done before and the acting is silly at times.
