ReviewSource James Berardinelli's ReelViews
Review ...Today, nearly fifty years after it was made, Rashomon has lost none of its fascination or power... In every sense of the word, this is a true classic. It's hard to find a more rewarding way to spend ninety minutes.

ReviewSource TV Guide Online
Review One of the most brilliantly constructed films of all time, Rashomon is a monument to Akira Kurosawa's greatness, combining his well-known humanism with a narrative style that has become a hallmark of film history... Rashomon also contains some of the most amazing performances you are likely to find anywhere...
