The Lower Depths

Directed by Akira Kurosawa

1957

The Lower Depths, based on Maxim Gorky’s play of the same name, is about the lives of the inhabitants of an Edo-period tenement. The Lower Depths is odd and hard to place. It’s intermittently amusing and insightful, but its hard to escape the feeling that you’ve watched the same 25-minute film five times in a row.

Would not see.
