<<Hey Mario, And if I remember correctly, A Taxing Woman's director Nobuku Miyamoto was cut in a drive-by slashing for poking fun at the Yakuza. He later commited ritual suicide after being publicly accused of adultery. By the way, I'm pretty sure the Taxing Woman was played by his wife.>>

I guess art got too close to reality... have any hardboiled U.S. authors ever gotten hurt (or at least threatened) because of their writings? I can't recall any cases.
