Scandal


Scandale – Akira Kurosawa – Trailer 投稿者 k-chan

The summer of Yoshiko Yamaguchi continues with Scandal, the Akira Kurosawa film starting Yamaguchi and Toshiro Mifune, which is showing as part of the National Film Center‘s “In Memory of Film Figures We Lost in 2013-2014” series. Vincent Canby called it both a parody of Hollywood and a satire of post-war Japan’s unquestioning acceptance of that culture. Showing on July 10 at 7 pm and August 27th at 3 pm with tickets costing a scandalous 520 yen, a good chance to see a lesser known (by me, anyways) Kurosawa film on, well, film.
