Popcorn Culture - Throwback Tuesday: Rashomon
This year, Akira Kurosawa’s Rashomon celebrates its 70th anniversary - a film so influential in storytelling that it has a trope named after it: the Rashomon Effect. The plot revolves around the murder of a samurai, as the events behind his death unfold from several different perspectives, all of which seem unreliable in their own ways. We look back at the 1950 Japanese classic by one of cinema history’s most celebrated filmmakers, starring Toshiro Mifune, Machiko Kyo, Masayuki Mori, and Takashi Shimura.
