Metadata:

A riveting psychological thriller that investigates the nature of truth and the meaning of justice, Rashōmon is widely considered one of the greatest films ever made. Four people give different accounts of a man’s murder and the rape of his wife, which director Akira Kurosawa 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—to the Western world. In Japanese with English subtitles. Contains mature content, including violence and sexual situations.
