Japan | 1948 | Akira Kurosawa
Toshiro Mifune is electrifying in his first performance for Akira Kurosawa, playing a gangster who visits an alcoholic slum doctor (Takashi Shimura) to have a bullet removed. When the doctor discovers that the criminal also has tuberculosis, the two men enter into a strangely symbiotic relationship. This terrific, visually stunning picture was followed by 15 other Mifune/Kurosawa collaborations. Subtitles. 98 min.
Special admission $11; members, CIA & CSU I.D. holders, and those age 25 & under $8; no passes, twofers, or radio winners. A new documentary about Mifune plays on 2/2 & 2/4.
