Capital Celluloid 2018 - Day 88: Thu Mar 29

The Bad Sleep Well (Kurosawa, 1960): Close-Up Cinema, 7.30pm

This presentation is part of Close-Up Cinema's 'Essential Cinema' programme. You can find full details of the season here.

Chicago Reader review:
Akira Kurosawa's 1960 presagement of the Lockheed scandal, with Toshiro Mifune fighting corporate corruption, is a well-done thriller with Kurosawa's usual social overtones. His use of the wide screen here seems, unaccountably, much more accomplished than in the later Dersu Uzala.

Here (and above) is the trailer.
