Wasabi

wasabi.jpgRented Wasabi last night. Had low expectations, despite Besson’s script and Reno in the lead. Worked well for Leon, after all. Even though Besson did not direct, I was pleasantly surprised that the pacing, movement of the camera, and mis-en-scene made it feel as though he did. Since I somehow retain traces of japanophilia, and the Reno-starring Besson films are among my very favorites, I shouldn’t have been surprised that I liked this. Not the best movie ever, of course, but a surprisingly amusing little film.

In a completely unrelated item, for those of you who have seen Daredevil, will someone tell me why the vengeful prosecuting attorney has… a private law practice?
