1001 Movies Club - Rashomon (1950)
#225. Rashomon (1950)
Why It's In The Book: "Plotted with competing points-of-view in flashback style, framed with a fluid moving camera, and shot under a canopy of dappled light, Rashomon details unreliable perspectives... nothing less than an epistemological nightmare, Akira Kurosawa's Oscar winner... [has] a consistent conclusion, given Rashomon's formal schizophrenia in a brilliant narrative structure - Kurosawa's first masterwork." -1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die
bpdreview - 10/10
"Rashomon is one of the twenty or thirty best movies I have ever had the pleasure of watching, and revisiting it for the second time brought me such great satisfaction and reminded me once again of the power of cinema to challenge our ways of thinking and make us better people as a result."
Jaime Grijalba - 10/10
"A movie with messages about life, lie and reality."
Jeff Coté - 10/10
"Rashomon effortlessly shows that regardless of the content of their character or the strength of their conviction, it is impossible to ever know the truth behind someone's words."
Klaus Ming - 10/10
"The presentation of various realities from the points of view of the different participants is a sophisticated exploration of postmodern storytelling whose purpose demonstrates the difficulty of knowing the truth."
marie_dressler - 10/10
"I love Kurosawa’s dazzling meditation on the nature of reality."
Michaël Parent - 10/10
"Since hundreds if not thousands of reviews have been written on the meanings and subtexts of this film, I would like to discuss of the place of it in Cinema History."
Movie Guy Steve - 10/10
"Regardless of how fantastic the story, few films have approached how the world truly works as thoroughly and beautifully."
SDG - 10/10
"Such horror stories are common now-a-days. I even hear that a demon here in Rashomon fled in fear of ferocity of men."
Adolytsi - 9/10
"This is the work of a master craftsman. Every shot speaks such poetic beauty that it is breathtaking to behold."
Brian Vs. Movies - 8/10
"An interesting, intelligent film that makes the gutsy choice to let the audience decide what really happened."
Doug Tilley - 8/10
"It's difficult to view Akira Kurosawa's masterpiece of perspective Rashomon without pondering just how influential it was - even as most of those works that tribute it miss the ambiguity that Kurosawa injects into his tale."
Squish - 8/10
"The story is simple and timeless, told poetically and rife with wisdom on the human condition."
alfindeol - 7/10
"They're all just hiding the threesome gone horribly awry."
