Glory to the Filmmaker! (監督·ばんざい!, Kantoku · Banzai! ) is a 2007 Japanese film written, directed, edited by the film's lead star Takeshi Kitano. It is the second film in Kitano's surrealist autobiographical trilogy, following Takeshis', and concluding with Achilles and the Tortoise. The comedy, presented as an "ultra variety movie", crosses a broad range of genres common to Japanese film, in a similar fashion to Kitano's 1995 parody Getting Any?. Kitano described the film as "a cinematic extension of [his] manzai comedy routines that continues in much the same vein as [his] last feature." Kitano plays a hapless film director in search of a commercial hit, while suffering failure after failure as he tries out different genres. In 2007, the Venice Film Festival introduced a new award named after the film, Kitano was also the first recipient of the Glory to the Filmmaker! award.
