A riveting psychological thriller that investigates the nature of truth and the meaning of justice, Rashomon is widely considered one of the greatest films ever made. Four people recount different versions of the story of a man’s murder and the rape of his wife, which director Akira Kurosawa (Seven Samurai) presents with striking imagery and an ingenious use of flashbacks. This eloquent masterwork and international sensation revolutionized film language and introduced Japanese cinema—and a commanding new star by the name of Toshiro Mifune (Yojimbo)—to the Western world.

The Blu-ray transfer is outstanding. The sharpness and contrast are beautiful. Machiko Kyo never looked better (except in color, as in Gate of Hell).
I always like the simulated torrential rain in Japanese films. If you've spent sufficient time there, you have probably experienced the real thing.
