"No one tells a lie after he's said he's going to tell one."

Akira Kurosawa's Rashomon is a film that I both liked and disliked.

On the one hand it was a visual arresting, superb study of human nature. But on the other hand the film is highly boring not to mention monotonous.

Rashomon opens as a group of men start discussing a heinous crime that unfol... read more

It is one of those movies I should definitely re-watch. Indeed, I saw it only once and it must have been something like 15 years ago. Still, I remember it as if it was yesterday. I was pretty young back in those days and after hearing so many good things about it, I thought I should give it a try. Of course, at first, I was a little bit worried, you know, a 60 years old movie, in black and white, ... read more

The murder of a man and the rape of his wife in a forest grove—seen from four different perspectives. Akira Kurosawa’s meditation on the nature of “truth” transformed narrative cinema as we know it.

"15.5 Paholaisen Temppeli. Neljä versiota yhdestä tapahtumasta. Kurosawa on ohjannut hyvin ja näyttävästi. Tunnelma on hieno ja kutkuttava. Selkeä."

"1.2 new "Truth" always depend on perspective and secondly, people are rarely honest even to themselves. The movie felt lot longer than it was (88 min) which is always chance to take with movies like this (one scene, many point of views). Even bigger problem was that movie didn´t give any new thoughts about anything for me."
