High and Low

High and Low ★★★★★

Episode 9 of Cineflek out now!! (Apple PodcastsSpotify)

High and Low gets better every time I watch it. I pick up more and more about the film every time I see it.

I was especially appreciative this time of Toshiro Mifune's performance and his character Gondo. I love his arc as a character, as he is losing everything and learns to be at peace with himself and his choices. Despite getting screwed over, he is truly happy and I find this incredibly inspiring. We often focus so much on the outcome of the situation, however Gondo reminds us that you must accept your choices regardless. His resilience is particularly inspiring.

This week I talked to Brian Bitner of the Lessons from The Screenplay YouTube Channel about one of my favorite Kurosawa's and possibly the greatest procedural of all time, High and Low.
