This has started my new interest in Japanese films by Akira Kurosawa.

I wish I'd seen this movie earlier in my life. I would have enjoyed it more. You have to give Akira respect for being the inspiration to so many Great American film makers.

Just saw it for the first time today. Loved it! I'm just beginning my journey into Japanese films, particularly Kurosawa and Kobayashi. Can't wait!

Don’t care what anyone thinks; this is one of the worst movies I’ve ever seen. Acting, filmmaking and soundtrack were all amateurish and God was the story just tedious and uneventful. Whoa, it’s told from different perspectives creating different subplots. So what? Doesn’t make the event itself interesting.

Did I miss something?
By far, Akira Kurosawa's weakest film. The event that's told again and again simply isn't interesting or mysterious. I just don't really gave a fuck about what was the true story. And then, that medium segment... bad, bad, bad movie.
