"Some of the most striking choreography in all of Kurosawa's cinema"
-- Peter Grilli, Director, The Japan Film Center

The legendary Toshiro Mifune hunts down his father's killer in Akira Kurosawa's masterful The Bad Sleep Well. Elements of Citizen Kane, American film noir, and Hamlet combine to chilling effect in this revenge tale set in the boardrooms of postwar corporate Japan. Criterion is proud to present the original 150 minute Tohoscope version, with a new widescreen transfer and electronic subtitles.
