The Bad Sleep Well


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

Fridays-Sundays, 11 a.m. Starts: May 20. Continues through May 22, 2011
