Amazing Movie

considering this is a 1962 Film, I couldn't help but be swept away by the Noir look & feel. Kurosawa obviously had been watching the French New Wave movies or was it the other way around??!! Either way, carefully crafted, beautifully acted (although a little stifling for todays taste) & the Nightclub scene & music must rank right up there with Uma & John in "Pulp Fiction" and our Bad Boy looks anything as good as Alain Delon in "Purple Noon"
This is a ""Don't Miss""

A brilliant crime film from one of the all time great directors. This is yet another Toshiro Mifune and Akira Kurosawa collaborations. Mifune, possibly most familiar to American audiences from the Shogunmini-series, probably has never been more dignified and honorable as a business man torn between helping save his chauffeurs son and the consequences of doing the right thing. Where most modern crime films would have sped through and ended in a car chase, High and Lowtakes it time to layer the intensity, unravel the kidnapping, and provide a behind the scene glimpse into the leg work the police do to solve a case. Kurosawa, better known for his period pieces, shows again what a master director can do with any genre.
