The Bad Sleep Well - coming from Criterion in January

The Bad Sleep Well - coming from Criterion in January

A young executive hunts down his father’s killer in director Akira Kurosawa’s scathing The Bad Sleep Well. Continuing his legendary collaboration with actor Toshiro Mifune, Kurosawa combines elements of Hamlet and American film noir to chilling effect in exposing the corrupt boardrooms of postwar corporate Japan.

Special features include:
  • New, restored high-definition digital transfer
  • A 36-minute documentary on the making of The Bad Sleep Well, created as part of the Toho Masterworks series
  • Original theatrical trailer
  • New and improved subtitle translation
  • New essays by film scholar Richard Combs and screenwriter-director Michael Almereyda (Deadwood, Hamlet)
