羅生門 / Rashōmon (1950) dir Akira Kurosawa w/Toshiro Mifune, Machiko Kyo, Masayuki Mori, Takashi Shimura [88 min; 35mm; in Japanese with English subtitles]
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 give different accounts of a man’s murder and the rape of his wife, which director Akira Kurosawa presents with striking imagery and an ingenious use of flashbacks. – Criterion Collection
