Capital Celluloid 2023 — Day 33: Thu Feb 2

Drunken Angel (Kurosawa, 1948): BFI Southbank, NFT1 6.20pm

This 35mm presentation (also screening on February 10th) is part of the Akira Kurosawa season. You can find the full details of the Kurosawa programme here.

Chicago Reader review:
The director’s first major work is a strange mixture of western genres (noir, melodrama, and even a little neorealism), a sign that Kurosawa preferred to diverge from Japan’s filmmaking conscious. This is a particularly effective exercise in style, technically accomplished and entertaining as all hell.
