A Film By Akira Kurosawa
Japan, 1950
Japanese w. English Subtitles

“What Akira Kurosawa and his tiny production team wrought is now an accepted maxim of modern life, a creed by which to live in a world where everyone has a blog and an opinion.”
-Boston Globe

This Kurosawa classic is brimming with action while incisively examining the nature of truth. Rashomon is perhaps the finest film ever to investigate the philosophy of justice. Through an ingenious use of camera and flashbacks, Kurosawa reveals the complexities of human nature as four people recount different versions of the story of a man’s murder and the rape of his wife.
