  1. I will start this Film Club thread with a goofy ad filled with sensational blurbs meant to get you to watch Kurosawa’s High and Low. Easy to rent on Amazon or ITunes. “HIGH AND LOW is really great…if we went with it I'd be more than happy to re-watch. I mean, Kurosawa!” - NBooth “I'd be excited to watch anything by these directors!” – Rob Z “Let's go with High and Low. I'll try to start a thread soon!” – Brian D “HIGH AND LOW is high on my to-watch list for my PhD research!” – Joel Mayward I hope you are inspired to watch with us!!!

    Nominated for the Waking Up list. I think this film is one scene short of greatness. That is to say, it needed exactly one scene LESS. The scene in which the older doctor acts like a samurai warrior. Any arguments as to why I should be convinced to take that scene seriously? It does help a lot that the movie has such a busy stew of characters...not just this one figure upon whom the whole film rests. This film does gather a head of steam by film's end, equal parts charm and power. I like the fact that some compare this to a Dickens novel, complete with large canvas and a handful of orphans. It is indeed expansive and multifaceted in a novelistic way. I am quite fascinated by how the well scene near the end of this film relates to "waking up" and the thread of this that we can see running through the film. And the whole Sahachi flashback sequence is a brilliant sub-film unto itself.
