Akira Kurosawa is unquestionably the best known Japanese filmmaker in the West. This can perhaps be best explained by the fact that he is not so much a Japanese or a Western filmmaker, but that he is a "modern" filmmaker. Like postwar Japan itself, he combines the ancient traditions with a distinctly modern, Western twist.

Akira Kurosawa's Rashomon is not only a well-made, well-acted film, it is a fascinating exploration of humanity and storytelling.

Sarah Brinks, Battleship Pretension

Not many movies make such an impact that their names enter into the language. Rashomon is such a movie.

Jonathan F. Richards, Film.com

Unmissable.

RASHOMON
Director: 
Akira Kurosawa
Country: 
Japan
Year: 
1950
Runtime: 
88 minutes

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.
