Japanese Movies

I am a big fan of Japanese movies while I'm aware that there are some gems of Japanese cinematography I still have to check out. This being said, Battle Royale and Zatôichi are on the top of my list while Takeshi Kitano is by far my favorite Japanese director.

So now I'm puzzled. While humbly admitting my own ignorance in the field of philosophy, I see that Tyler Cowen qualifies Battle Royale as an Hobbesian movie. This means that I really have to get into this Hobbesian side of the movie to see what it's all about, just because I'm purely intrigued by this comparison:)

PS : With a little help from my friends I finally got it:)
