In ancient Japan, a woman is raped and her husband killed. RASHOMON is played out by giving us four stories- with every story revealing different points of view. The question remains - just which version is the truth. RASHOMON was remade with Paul Newman as THE OUTRAGE (1964) and also credited by director Bryan Singer as his inspiration for the Oscar winning 1995 film THE USUAL SUSPECTS. Kurosawas breakthrough movie to the West, winning the 1950 Oscar for best Foreign film - RASHOMON remains one of the truly great films of the 20th century.
