Criterion Presents: Arthouse Monthly: Rashomon
Not rated, 88 min. Directed by Akira Kurasawa., Starring Toshiro Mifune, Masayuki Mori, Takashi Shimura and Machiko Kyo.
It’s not often that a movie title enters the common vernacular, but these days, when we describe something as Rashomon-like, we are referring to this movie’s presentation of multiple versions of the truth of a rape and murder. Kurosawa's first big international hit also won an Oscar for Best Foreign picture.
