The Bad Sleep Well
Dir. Akira Kurosawa (1960). Kurosawa transposed elements of Hamlet to Japans corrupt business world in this long-infused but ultimately gripping thriller, starring an icy Toshiro Mifune as an illegitimate son seeking to avenge his fathers murder, in part by marrying the daughter of an evil magnate.
