High and Low


High and Low (天国と地獄 Tengoku to Jigoku, literally "Heaven and Hell") is a 1963 film directed by Akira Kurosawa, starring Toshirō Mifune, Tatsuya Nakadai and Kyōko Kagawa. It was loosely based on King's Ransom, an 87th Precinct police procedural by Ed McBain.

The first half is great with the kidnapping and moral conundrums that come along with it (business v humanity type of stuff.) The second half, which focuses on the police's efforts to catch the kidnapper, is a little bit boring I'll admit. Wish we had just stuck with Toshiro Mifune's excellent performance. You could say the film has highs and lows.

I'll give the film a solid 8/10 for what worked though. Really good stuff from Kirosawa. Just not quite a classic like some of his others.
