  1. fahmi khoirussani's rating of the film Rashômon

    kurosawa memulai karir dengan kepercayaannya terhadap manusia di film ini. selang berapa puluh tahun, di 'ran' barangkali kurosawa telah berada di satu barisan dengan oshima

  2. Josh's rating of the film Rashômon

    Guys, I know this is a classic and I GET it. I get the ramifications on narrative structure, but this movie didn't do it for me. My least fave kurosawa of the half dozen or so I've seen. I don't know what to say. Feel free to say livid things online at me and try and change my mind. But probably you will not change my mind.

  3. Danny Mansfield's rating of the film Rashômon

    An iconic film that needs no formal review from me. Its status is well deserved.

  4. SLionsCricket's rating of the film Rashômon

    Of my many viewings of "Rashomon", this proved the most absorbing and magnetic. Kurosawa's work with his DP, Kazuo Miyagawa is a sight to behold especially as far as the lighting is concerned. There is so much dramatic power in Kurosawa's use of light and his close-up and just as much power in the film's exceptionally monumental score and the lead performances of Mifune and Kyô, both of whom are larger than life.

  6. Julia Nogueira's rating of the film Rashômon

    Uma maravilha de filme. Só faltou aqui Derzu Uzala

  7. whimsicalmelancholy's rating of the film Rashômon

    plotnya banyak tapi sampai akhir ceritanya ga terungkap. Kebohongan yg ujung-ujung berujung pada suatu kebenaran tentang manusia, yaitu kita semua akan menjadi subjektif tentang keadaan demi kesejahteraan diri sendiri. Gila sih aktingnya Toshiro Mifune bagus bgt, salah satu bagian terbaik filmnya.

  8. Josh the Bookseller's rating of the film Rashômon

    The only true stories are the ones about how no story is entirely true. Bring back Modernism.

  9. Duarte Ferreira's rating of the film Rashômon

    Kurosawa tackles the different faces truth can have and what man is capable of doing when stripped of power and thrown off his pedestal. This is a sort of narrative that has been done to death throughout the decades, but I firmly believe this is the best example of it. The poetry in motion that Kurosawa brings to the screen is in full display here.

  10. Fabiha's rating of the film Rashômon

    "It's human to lie. Most of the time we can't even be honest to ourselves."

  11. dionysus67's rating of the film Rashômon

    A visual and philosophical tour-de-force, Rashomon offers a moral manifesto against relativism (cognitive and moral) but through a relativist storytelling structure (there is no privileged, Archimedean pov). The common denominator is a hurricane performance by Mifune balanced by the repentant woodcutter (Shimura) and the categorical imperative that a (baby's) life deserves to be lived and to flourish. Unsurpassed!

  12. sebekk's rating of the film Rashômon

    Human subjectivity at it's finest.

  13. Chearth's rating of the film Rashômon

  14. Elena's rating of the film Rashômon

    Favourite Kurosawa movie, think I need to rewatch

  15. Ben Nash's rating of the film Rashômon

    The Usual Suspects WISHES that it was this good.

  16. Eirianedd's rating of the film Rashômon

    The true is not there. In any of their points of view. It never has been there. Anywhere. Introduction to the postmodern relativism.

  17. Walker's rating of the film Rashômon

    Kurosawa's movies are pretty much beyond criticism. I have nothing to add.

  18. Jdsarmientoburgos's rating of the film Rashômon

    Famously known for bringing Kurosawa and Japanese cinema into our western hearts. Negative points for the caricature of characters even if that was the point.

  19. kartina obskura's rating of the film Rashômon

  20. Dzernera's rating of the film Rashômon

    While most of the time we hold truth as something self-evident, Rashomon lightly takes one to the point where "truth" can also be nothing more than just a dream or self-created reality. A place where a single happening will inevitably depend on the inner world of the one gazing at it. Remarkable movie that gives more than just a single thought on the complex world of feeling and human perceptions.

  21. Richmond Hill's rating of the film Rashômon

    A thoughtful and visually poetic exploration of some of mans' foibles not least the impossibility of a fidelity of memory, truth and lies. Kurosawa directs with clarity if over-emphasis in places (notably the elongated fights and restoration of a hope at the conclusion). Hayasaka's Ravelian score and Miyagawa's dappled cinematography soften the edges of so-called reality. A film with long tallons.

  22. Christofi Cotonou's rating of the film Rashômon

    It's been a while since I saw it, but I remember being impressed with the technicality. Especially a particular scene with a possessed woman...

  23. Thomas Dods's rating of the film Rashômon

    It's great and I understand it's influence on so much cinema after its release, but I have always preferred other films by Kurosawa. Needs to revisit.

  24. MistaRichard's rating of the film Rashômon

    Kurosawa, in unparalleled style, provides us with a study on how one story can have such diverse and differing accounts, all of them inaccurate to a certain extent, subtly making the viewer question the very nature of truth. Full of rich characters and an intricate plot overflowing with philosophical undertones, this is a humble film about story, with one that'll remain in the back of your mind. Essential.
