    I thought the first one was a better film, mainly because its more focused on the Cuban revolution.

    The second part is still worth a watch though, a lot of good scenes in the second film.

    I always get names and titles (especially spelling) mixed up! Outrage is sick but very good! What i like about Sonatine is the cinematography. the scene on the beach with the sumo wrestling is absolutely brilliant. Hanna Bi is good as well - not that i'm one dimensional on film directors or anything <laugh>.

    Aye.

    Outrage beats Sonatine on the plot, but as you say the cinematography in Sonatine is good.

    Was made really well for a small budget I suppose.

    Apart from Aldo no one seems to have mentioned any of Kurosawa's movies.

    If you are a fan of foreign movies these are musts:

    Rashomon
    Hidden Fortress
    Yojimbo

    and as Aldo said "Seven Samurai". If you have never seen this then you should.
