  Kinji Fukasaku RIP
  Battle Royale director dies
  Kinji Fukasaku, the great Japanese director, has died of prostate cancer at the age of 72. Fukasaku is probably best known for his controversial film Battle Royale (2000), a merciless satire of modern Japanese society in which a group of school kids are set loose upon each other on a remote island. Fukasaku began directing in 1961 and tried his hand at most genres, and was a co-direcor on the war epic Tora! Tora! Tora! (1970). He really made his mark in the mid-70s when he directed a series of influential gangster thrillers — such as Yakuza Graveyard and Graveyard Of Honour — that broke new ground in terms of their depiction of sex, drugs and violence. Fukasaku had begun working on a sequel to Battle Royale, but handed over the directorial reigns to his son when he fell ill.
