The Bad Sleep Well
Dir. Akira Kurosawa (1960).
Difficult and challenging and one of the director's most underrated films, this forceful drama, his most political film, is an attack on the collusion between government, press, police, and Japan's giant zaibatsu companies. Toshiro Mifune takes on the rotten corporate world, looking to avenge the death of his father who had been driven to suicide by a bigwig executive.
