Stray Dog Directed by Akira Kurosawa

Critics reviews

Driving forward even as the characters wander in circles, his camera is all swift pans and hard curves, one sinewy composition after another. A long take of Mifune sharing a beer with an affably hardboiled pickpocket (melancholy harmonica player in the foreground) unfolds as a languid dolly-in casually punctuated by a glimpse of a summer night’s starry sky.

Coming just before RASHOMON, his breakthrough into more serious filmmaking, STRAY DOG finds Kurosawa at the peak of his craft before reaching for even greater thematic heights. The movie is a gripping, often intense detective story built around a rich depiction of post-war Tokyo.
