This landmark Japanese masterpiece is Akira Kurosawa's cinematic examination of the subjective nature of truth.

Not many movies make such an impact that their names enter into the language. Rashomon is such a movie.
Jonathan F. Richards,
A top-to-bottom miracle of a film, burly in its philosophy and graceful in its style.
Tim Brayton, Alternate Ending
What Kurosawa implies in this haunting film is that in the retelling, inevitably every man will make himself out to be the hero or villain of the story.
