Rashomon

Rashomon is an interesting, though not great, Japanese movie about the nature of truth and different viewpoints. I rate it 6/10.

Rashomon is a Japanese movie about a crime of rape and murder. It shows the differing accounts of the crime. Which is the truth? It never tells us that, or at least not directly.

Having watched a few old Japanese movies, a few things seem very similar, like the rain and the village setting. These old Japanese movies look like low-budget movies and hence some of the production values (as well as the restoration work) are not that good. However, the movie plot is generally decent.

While Rashomon was interesting, it wasn’t great. I would rate it 6/10.
