Considered one of the most brilliantly constructed films of all time, Rashomon has become synonymous with the subjectivity of truth. Set in medieval Japan, four witnesses give mutually contradictory accounts of a heinous crime. This masterpiece introduced Japanese cinema to the West, and was the surprise winner at 1951's Venice Film Fest, then went on to win an Oscar for Best Foreign Film. Starring Toshiro Mifune. (Akira Kurosawa; 1950, Japan; 88 min) The local dollar theaters may be extinct, but our new monthly series of essential cinema might just fill the void. All seats $2 -- and our popcorn is affordable too!
