Kurosawa’s Rashomon, re-viewed
This article, although it devotes some space to Akira Kurosawa’s overall career, focuses on Rashomon (1950) – a film that many consider his greatest work, and one of the great artworks of the twentieth century. Rashomon is also the film that made Kurosawa one of the first Japanese directors to become known to the West, and that even gave rise to a term – the ‘Rashomon effect’ – now used not only in cinema but also in literature, legal studies, psychology, sociology, anthropology and history.
