21. Boiling Point (1990)

Director: Takeshi “Beat” Kitano

In Boiling Point, award-winning director/writer/actor Takeshi Kitano handles the lead role of Uehara, a disgustingly brutal killer and rapist who’s excommunicated by the yakuza because of his inhumane methods (i.e. raping men, or forcing his girlfriend to have sex with strangers). He stumbles upon two young boys that want to cop hammers from Okinawa, and decides to ominously circulate around the younger souls for his own revengeful agenda. One lesson to be learned here: Don’t befriend strangers with squinting eyes that were forcefully removed from the yakuza.
