High and Low


Dir. Akira Kurosawa (1963).
Kurosawa creates his own double-bill in this engrossing policier set against Japan’s economic miracle. The first half is a morally-complex kidnapping drama in which the wrong kid is nabbed; the second is the Dostoyevskian search for the perp.

Fridays-Sundays, 11 a.m. Starts: June 17. Continues through June 19, 2011
