Drunken Angel DVD (S) LiveAction

In this early noir from the great Akira Kurosawa, Toshiro Mifune bursts onto the screen as a volatile, tuberculosis-infected criminal who strikes up an unlikely, unhealthy relationship with Takashi Shimura's jaded physician. Set in and around the muddy swamps and back alleys of postwar Tokyo, Drunken Angel (Yoidore tenshi) is an evocative, moody snapshot of a troubled time and place, featuring one of the director's most memorably violent climaxes.

DVD Features: Audio Commentary featuring Donald Richie, Making of Documentary, Documentary on the Challenges Kurosawa Faced from Censors, Essay by Ian Buruma, Reprint from Kurosawa's Something Like an Autobiography.

Spoken Languages: Japanese, English subtitles.
