Criterion: The Sword of Doom (***) doesn’t land flush

A weak third act tears down the momentum of what could be a classic film.

Criterion: The Idiot (**) – Pure soul / faithless world / messy film

There is no known full version of this film. If there were, it might take me a year to finish. It would likely be a lot better, though.

Criterion: Rashomon (*****) weak by nature

Rashomon stands as a gateway to our existence. It is one of the greatest films ever made, and should be viewed by anyone seeking insight through true artistic achievement. It should be used as a template for those wishing to begin to understand the ever contrasting nature of humanity.
