Parisien Beat

The film director, Takeshi Kitano (Beat Takeshi), was not only was awarded a medal as a commandeur des Arts et des Lettres in Paris last week, but is exhibiting his paintings in a prestigious centre there now. I haven't seen many recent films by him, though I like many of his earlier ones. And actually quite enjoy his paintings. A Japanese friend once said about Takeshi that "what you see is what you get". I guess that's true, but, in an English phrase, "The boy done good."
