High and Low


Trust me, what the director showed in High and Low has exceeded my expectations. The cast is also extremely convincing in their roles. Akira Kurosawa has several directorial successes. High and Low filled me with hard to explain energy, made me so embedded in it. I walked into this movie totally blind. I knew nothing about it, even never saw a trailer... For me it is very undervalued movie. You can see this movie on XMovies8 for free.

An executive mortgages all he owns to stage a coup and gain control of the National Shoe Company, with the intent of keeping the company out of the hands of incompetent and greedy executives. He needs the same money, though, to pay the ransom that will possibly save a child's life. His resolution of that dilemma - the certain loss of the company vs. the probable loss of the child - makes for one distinct drama, and an ensuing elaborate police procedure makes for a second.
