Download and Watch classic film for free

Akira Kurosawa, is currently the #67 ranked movie of all time on the Internet Movie Database. Apparently, the copyright protection for Rashomon has expired and it is now in the public domain and is available in a number of streaming and downloadable versions.

The format of Rashomon uses a format that retells the same story four times, using the perspective of four different people. This narrative style has been the inspiration for many recent movies, including Jet Li's Hero and Little Red Riding Hood's Hoodwinked.

I also look forward to looking into the Internet Archive a little more.

Try not to read too much into the double-Japan linking whammy.

I prefer Japoteurs over Rashomon.
