A riveting psychological thriller that investigates the nature of truth and the meaning of justice, "Rashomon" is widely considered one of the greatest films ever made. Four people recount different versions of the story of a man's murder and the rape of his wife, which director Akira Kurosawa ("Seven Samurai") presents with striking imagery and an ingenious use of flashbacks. This eloquent masterwork and international sensation revolutionized film language and introduced Japanese cinema - and a commanding new star by the name of Toshiro Mifune ("Yojimbo") - to the Western world.
