One of the earliest and best of the Mifune / Kurosawa collaborations came with this vivid film noir-style thriller set in a steamy, oppressive post-war Tokyo. It has the pace and verve of a Warner Brothers crime yarn of the period, with Mifune playing a rookie homicide detective who loses his pistol to an opportunistic pickpocket. The sense of shame only intensifies as he obsessively searches through the city’s seedy clubs and black market dives to retrieve the gun and salvage his honour. A tense, nail-biter of a film with a fervent Mifune conveying the anguish of a man on the edge.
