Capital Celluloid 2022 — Day 133: Sun May 15

The Bad Sleep Well (Kurosawa, 1960): Prince Charles Cinema, 2.35pm

This 35mm presentation is part of the Akira Kurosawa season. Full details 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.
