Rashomon

Rashomon ★★★★★

This is an incredible movie to rewatch. The rain and the sky are so much more dynamic than almost anything you can see and it's in black and white. I watched this along with Ghost Dog that heavily references the book this is based on, although apparently the source material was somewhat changed and fiddled with in different releases (kind of like Frankenstein). It turns out the story of Ghost Dog is more like Yojimbo. I think this viewing hit harder for me in the final scene than it had when I've seen it in the past.
