Rashoman An Akira Kurosawa Classic,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Rashomon (The Criterion Collection) [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
This is a film about a Lumberjack who witnesses a murder of a Samurai. He is remissnessing to a priest and a thief about what he had witnessed and what happened at the Trial for the bandit who killed the Samurai.
This movie is very well put together and has a few unique twists that makes it very interesting to watch. If you love Samurai movies like I do then this is a movie to look into.
Akira Kurosawa was ahead of his time and his movies are some of the best films ever made. This movie may not be as good as Yojimbo or Seven Samurai, but it's a great movie none the less. It's got a solid story with interesting characters in an awesome feudal Japanese backdrop.
If you're a Chanbara film fan this movie is a must see.
