HIGH AND LOW

HIGH AND LOW

Wed 23 Sep, 7pm

Like a Japanese MacBeth, the richly drawn characters in High and Low live in a complex world of idealogical contradictions, strategic powerplays and moral dilemmas. Providing all the pleasures of a classic crime drama, the filmmaking shines with the assurance of a director absolutely in control of his medium, stretching beyond mere mastery of technique and performance to also offer an insightful multi layered portrait of social life in (it has to be said) a very stylish, 1960’s Japan.
