Still trying to decide what I want to be when I grow up

Rashomon

I need to find some place to rent this film and watch it again. It is the story of a story of murder. In 12 century Japan, a witness and two suspects each describe the events with three distinct and differing sets of details. The truth is further complicated by the version told by the dead man, through a medium. IMDB plot summary

What is truth? Is truth absolute, or based in perception?

The film made by Akira Kurosawa,(Seven Samurai)

in 1950, leaves the truth to be determined by the viewer.

Available on Amazon and through Criterion Collection
