Rashomon (Blu-ray)


Akira Kurosawa's hugely influential 1950 drama



- +

Akira Kurosawa's powerful meditaion on the malleable nature of 'truth' was a breakthrough hit with Western audiences.

Winner of the top prize at the 1952 Venice Film Festival and an Honorary Academy Award the same year, the film follows a woodcutter (Takashi Shimura) who witnesses a horrific series of events - an ambush, the rape of a noblewoman (Machiko Kyo) and the subsequent murder of her samurai husband (Mayasuki Mori) by a bandit (Toshiro Mifune).

Yet, in the recounting of the incidents at the trial, differing versions come from all involved, thus raising questions about the reliability of subjective 'truth'.
