SANDOME NO SATSUJIN
Japan | 2017 | Hirokazu Kore-eda
Before he won the Palme d’Or at this year’s Cannes Film Festival for his latest film Shoplifters, Japan’s humanistic master Hirokazu Kore-eda (After the Storm, Our Little Sister) directed The Third Murder, his first courtroom drama and first movie in ‘scope. The film follows an accomplished Japanese lawyer as he defends an accused murderer in an alleged open-and-shut case. (The accused is an ex-con who had killed previously, so the goal is to get him a life sentence rather than the death penalty.) But as the trial proceeds, the attorney begins to doubt the “truth.” “Mysteriously beautiful…[Poses] serious questions about the judicial system and the concept of judging another human being.” –Hollywood Reporter. Subtitles. DCP. 124 min.
