Shubuni - Scandal (Kurosawa, 1950)
An artist tries to defend his good reputation from the yellow press.
Not the strongest Kurosawa but with some interesting thoughts. Especially the lawyer played by Shimura is an interesting figure in so far that he doesn't change his character throughout the movie, therefore defying any "hollywood" turnaround. There are some strange problems in the pacing of the film, it still seems Kurosawa is looking for a good way to edit scenes.
