Dodes’ka-den

Directed by Akira Kurosawa

1970

Based on Shūgorō Yamamoto’s book, Kisetsu no nai machi (“The Town Without Seasons”), Dodes’ka-den follows a variety of characters who live in a shantytown. Dodes’ka-den is quite possibly one of Akira Kurosawa’s worst films. Kurosawa is a talented director and many of his films are masterpieces. Most are at least worth watching; Dodes’ka-den is not. The film alternates between the strange and the tragic, but it is neither entertaining nor affecting.

Would not see.
