No Sleep — The Bad Sleep Well (Impression)

An underrated gem from the best Japanese filmmaker of all time. Akira Kurosawa's Shakespeare-inspired tale of corporate corruption sees Toshiro Mifune as a corporate serf, trying to exact revenge in behalf of his deceased father. Kurosawa might be the master storyteller of Samurai concentrated period films but he has proven with this masterpiece that he can whipped up a real-mean and gritty crime thriller. One of the best film noir's I've seen in years (and there are so many).
