Scandal

Being on my quest to finish the AK100, I have just finished viewing “Scandal”. This is Kurosawa’s most “Hollywood”-esque film focusing on a popular singer and a painter being caught in the midst of an innocent moment in which paparazzi photographers take a snapshot of the event. The whole event escalades when tabloids get a hold of the picture. Overall, I liked it, but the script was very unbalanced. It began focusing on the painter and singer, but ended up focusing on the lawyer. Which, when I come to think about it, it offers a pretty alright parallel and interesting take on the lives of the victims, and the supposed protector. Good movie, check it out.
