Hisayasu Sato's improved reimagining of Rashomon
28 April 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In a Thicket (1996) (Japanese Fantasy Drama/Thriller/Horror).

This film by Hisayasu Sato is based on the same short story that yielded the film "Rashomon." It starts with a detective trying to unravel the story of a man and a woman encountering a bandit-rapist in the woods. The forest environment is very atmospheric, and it is nicely assisted by moody lighting and dreamy score. This has a fairytale feel to it, and a few scenes are quite creepy. Not quite as "sex/nudity packed" as Sato's exploitation films, but there's enough of it. Good performances, bloody violence, and sword fights round this one out.

This work of art is better than Akira Kurosawa's film (which I'm not a fan of). Check it out!
