AKIRA KUROSAWA directs

TOSHIRO MIFUNE:

The Two Main Men of Japan

HIGH AND LOW

Directed by AKIRA KUROSAWA/Japan/1963/2hrs, 23mins.


HIGH AND LOW Japanese program, 1963

Toshiro Mifune is unforgettable as Kingo Gondo, a wealthy industrialist whose family becomes the target of a cold-blooded kidnapper in High and Low (Tengoku to jigoku), the highly influential domestic drama and police procedural from director Akira Kurosawa. Adapting Ed McBain’s detective novel King’s Ransom, Kurosawa moves effortlessly from compelling race-against-time thriller to exacting social commentary, creating a diabolical treatise on contemporary Japanese society.-Criterion (In Japanese with English subtitles)

“Kurosawa’s once insisted-upon reputation as Japan’s most “Western” filmmaker aside, the director whose go-for-baroque Rashomon decisivelyopened international eyes to Japanese filmmaking was rarely shy about his American tar-pit pleasures…”-Chuck Stephens
