  1. Luca Angelini's rating of the film The Bad Sleep Well

  2. Wee Hunk's rating of the film The Bad Sleep Well

    Kurosawa confounds expectations. There is misdirection in terms of the music, and while it follows some of the conventions of noir, it also breaks a lot of the rules. Intriguing overall, while uneven in parts.

  4. FISCHER's rating of the film The Bad Sleep Well

    Une oeuvre tourmentée, fort longue (181 minutes), d'une constante noirceur qui fait penser au dramatique fatum des personnages shakespeariens... www.cinefiches.com

  5. Ryan Swen's rating of the film The Bad Sleep Well

    Singularly riveting in spite of itself.

  6. ammar's rating of the film The Bad Sleep Well

  7. Terry_Moby's rating of the film The Bad Sleep Well

    The reporters gossiping at the wedding is a masterclass on film direction. Everything Kurosawa did in the 60s had such scope. Incomparable.

  9. Il secondo maestro del revolver's rating of the film The Bad Sleep Well

  10. Bob's rating of the film The Bad Sleep Well

    Glorious opening with criss-cross scene of wedding and media affair soon descents into a slow build up of inter space between revenge and guilt which peaks with Mifune's epic sustained performance. At times challenging to keep the track all the way through but sudden ending leaves the feeling of abruptness and by that, a revelation that everything was evolving just the way it was intended which mirrors actual title.

  11. Nathan Goldman's rating of the film The Bad Sleep Well

    it's fine but the title is the best part, honestly

  12. Alexander Dunkelberger's rating of the film The Bad Sleep Well

    It may be very liberated from the source material, but the film captures the spirit of the play and applies it to the modern era of corporate greed and corruption; corruption so deep it even ensnares the stand in for the ghost of the prince’s father. Kurosawa's overall impeccable sense of style and composition make it nearly as well crafted a piece of cinema as the others I've seen from the Japanese auteur.

  13. SpacePirate's rating of the film The Bad Sleep Well

    4.5 stars. Just excellent from beginning to end. One of my fav Kurosawas. Mifune gives another spellbinding performance.

  14. Ostermyers's rating of the film The Bad Sleep Well

  15. Michael Zyx MH Claes's rating of the film The Bad Sleep Well

    Kurosawa, c'est (1) le Japon de l'après-guerre, (2) l'image et (3) Mifune. Plus une histoire. Ici une tragédie cornélienne du partage des sentiments d'une femme entre son mari et son père. Beau et insoluble.

  16. Hyldre's rating of the film The Bad Sleep Well

    Les belles âmes arrivent difficilement à croire au mal, à l'ingratitude, il leur faut de rudes leçons avant de reconnaître l'étendue de la corruption humaine. (Illusions perdues, Honoré de Balzac)

  17. Arnaud Millan's rating of the film The Bad Sleep Well

  18. HSBilly's rating of the film The Bad Sleep Well

    mifune's hamlet and the noir, it was chilling....

  19. RoRoRoro's rating of the film The Bad Sleep Well

  20. Julius GL's rating of the film The Bad Sleep Well

    Même si la narration passe trop souvent par les dialogues et des explications peu cinématographiques, cela reste remarquable, intelligent et puissant.

  21. Durandré's rating of the film The Bad Sleep Well

    Je ne crois avoir déjà été déçu par un film de Kurosawa... mais là, la barre est encore plus haut... à voir toutes affaires cessantes !

  22. Olivier Serafinowicz's rating of the film The Bad Sleep Well

    film essentiel, et jusqu'au dernier coup de fil.

  23. azoulay's rating of the film The Bad Sleep Well

    la corruption par Kurosawa, une grande intensité, deux Japon s'affrontent. L'ancien, corrompu et rétrograde où l'argent domine tout y compris les liens familiaux et le nouveau, intègre et libre. Dans ce nouveau monde les corps se touchent et les êtres qui s'aiment, s'étreignent. Dynamique et impitoyable le film, ce drame shakespearien, avance avec l'efficacité d'un film noir. Impressionnant.
