  1. Karl J. Kipling's rating of the film The Angry Street

    Uncommon material for Naruse: a pair of postwar student con-men fleece unsuspecting girls from wealthy families. Naruse's films are full of cowardly men, selfish men, foolish men, cold men - but I can't think of another evil chap like student number two, who'd ruin everyone to get ahead and greets grannie's death with a very un-Japanese "glad the old bag finally had the decency to die."

  2. Holyphool's rating of the film The Angry Street

    A serene touching tale of two students who fleece money from lonely rich dance hall girls looking for love almost resembles a happy American comedy with its western venues and two main characters who find themselves increasingly in bewildering emotional situations: one lies to his increasingly disturbed family and pursues a life of crime while the other turns and achieves redemption from his friend's sister.
