Its interesting, because Takita's recent films seem to have been quite widely distributed. When the Last Sword is Drawn for example got a UK release. I personally have always found his more recent works quite anonymous, so I can't see him being the subject of much "auteurship" emphasis. His pink films however were very different from the norm at the time, some of the most entertaining of the 80s.I'm personally more interested in seeing Kato Kunio's film.
