Rarely did a director have such a big impact with his very last film. Battle Royale is a cult classic, an amusing slice of mayhem that derives a lot of fun from its premise, but rises above itself with some very deliberate touches of absurdity. It's not the most refined film, but raw power, energy and wit more than make up for that.
