Film: "Rashomon"

Akira Kurosawa’s riveting psychological drama investigates the nature of truth—and is worth a second look in this era of “fake news.”

A riveting psychological drama that investigates the nature of truth and justice, Akira Kurosawa’s eloquent masterwork presents four different accounts of a samurai’s murder and the rape of his wife. With an ingenious use of flashbacks, the defining event takes on a different twist with each retelling.

Toshiro Mifune (Seven Samurai) gives a commanding performance as a bandit in this eloquent masterwork that revolutionized film language and introduced Japanese cinema to the world. With its meditation on the subjective nature of reality, Rashomon is due for a second look—especially during our current moment of “fake news.”
