 `Boiling Point': Death, Despair and Bad Manners
"Boiling Point" was made in 1990, well before Kitano won international renown for "Hana-Bi" ("Fireworks") and "Sonatine" and a year after he made his debut as a film director with "Violent Cop," which opened in New York last summer.
In "Boiling Point," Kitano, who calls himself Beat and is also an actor, stand-up comic, film editor, painter, poet, essayist, journalist, author, television personality and all-around tough guy, takes a baseball team as his metaphor for the old Japan of mannerly behavior, respect for authority and sublimation of self in favor of the general good.
Including a scene of a crude butcher-knife amputation of a finger joint in keeping with the yakuza code, "Boiling Point," like the smoother, sharper "Violent Cop," is not for the sensitive or squeamish, which is not to say that it is without its comic touches.

 Lobsters Feel Pain>Death by Boiling
Being torn from their underwater homes and transported over long distances is very stressful for these sensitive and solitary animals, and for many of the lobsters, it’s only the beginning of the long imprisonment leading up to their death.
When they are finally purchased, lobsters endure being carelessly handled and jostled on the way to their final destination, and they are boiled or chopped up while they’re still conscious.
In addition to boiling lobsters while they’re still conscious, there are many other ways that people torture these animals before killing them—chefs have been known to chop up live lobsters before cooking them, and others put these animals in the microwave to kill them.
