The murder of a man and the rape of his wife in a forest grove seem from four different perspectives. Toshiro Mifune explodes as the feral bandit who may or may not be guilty of these crimes in Akira Kurosawa's meditation on the nature of truth a classic, humane allegory that transformed narrative cinema as we know it and turned its director into an international sensation.
An artistic achievement of such distinct character that it is difficult to estimate it alongside conventional story films. --New York Times

Great legal rental of a film I had never seen before. Helped me stay current with a podcast I follow, "Moving On".

Akiro Kurosawa was truly one of the greatest pioneers of movie making. In Rashomon, you get the first movie to present multiple points of view of the story being told. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Randall Jett

|In your opinion how do the "Essential Art House" DVD's compare....||
From what I understand it is the same exact transfer as the Criterion versions of the films except it's a bare bone release stripped of all the extras. So it's basically Criterion on a budget. If all you care about is the film itself then it's a good deal.
