THE BAD SLEEP WELL An industrialist seeks to avenge his father’s death, leading to tragedy, in this depiction of “feudal capitalism.” The Japanese corporate world is infused with cut-throat Samurai warrior-like values in this excellent film. Outstandingly directed in a modern setting, it is a film noir that rises to the level of a Shakespearean drama, and, truly, one of Kurosawa’s major artistic achievements.
