The Many Faces Of Takeuchi Riki

This week, UK distributor Eureka released Tokyo Tribe on Blu-ray. James Marsh reviewed that release and found it to be much to his liking.

In it, veteran actor Takeuchi Riki plays Boss Buppa, a performance which makes Asano Tadanobu's turn as Kakihara in Ichi the Killer look subtle and restrained. As a depraved, overweight and insanely violent cannibal gangster, Takeuchi Riki doesn't just chew the scenery, he devours it, especially when said scenery consists mostly of guns, gold and naked girls! Which is why we love him and why this is an excellent excuse to dedicate a quiz to him.

So once again I'm going to use nine pictures of one of my favourite thespians to make a quiz. Click through the images, and guess which movies they're from. No competition, no prizes, just for fun, try to see how far you get without using IMDb!

And I'll post the answers next Thursday (or earlier if someone gets all nine of them right).

And here he is as Boss Buppa, in one of Tokyo Tribe's quietest moments.

This picture doesn't count yet for the quiz, but all others do. So please browse through the gallery: click on the edge of the picture to get the next one, and see how many of them all you can identify!

Ha! I am having to face the very real possibility that I watched these movies out of order, possibly with the VCDs in the wrong jewel boxes. Crime doesn't pay, kiddies!
