This week we were required to watch the film Rashomon for Western Heritage. At first I thought the film was a little ridiculous, with all of the over exaggerated acting styles, but looking back now I really enjoyed the artistic aspect of the movie. The angles used to highlight certain viewpoints and the overall cinematography was beautiful. I have never seen a black and white film with such breathtaking shots and and such a complex filming technique. I really enjoyed the artistic aspect of the film and recommend that if you watch it to watch for the visuals and not the dialogue.
