    ★★

    I'm not the hugest fan of Kurosawa but I understand the praise of his other works I have seen but it's just misogynistic story telling in a format that while being influential mostly inspired bland/forgettable works of fiction.

    The set designs outside "memories" looks so cheap while the other scenes are eyesores of badly shot whiteness. I know it's before he was well known world-wide with a larger budget but Stray Dog didn't have this problem.

    I never liked this…

    ★½

    This is the kind of thing that would be sub-par on a rental store's TV looping previews where it belongs, also the soundtrack mixing doesn't fit one bit.

    Pretty ironic that Tin Toy beat this for best animation short.

    ★★

    Iconic movie to most but I don't get why people care so much about a story about a boxer who was a prick to women (raped,assaulted and jealousy),did pimping towards a fourteen year old and was a overall scumbag.

    Being good at boxing (or anything) shouldn't excuse scummy things you do.

    The film itself just goes though random events of his life with little or no context overall with the boxing scenes feeling so cheap outside of that one iconic…
