Rashomon ★★★★★

Wonderful film and very underrated in terms of Kurosawa’s work. The budget is not overly large making the sets simple with it only being contained in a few locations and few characters the performances is what really drives this home for me. Honestly this is a slow movie with not too much happening however with its simple premise and setting the performances shine. Mifune is a phenomenal actor and the minimalist esthetic of the overall film really accentuate his performance and with a wide range of emotional tones. This second watch and still just as good as first.
