Stray Dog (17-Oct-1949)

Original Title: Nora inu

Director: Akira Kurosawa

Writers: Ryuzo Kikushima; Akira Kurosawa

Keywords: Crime

During an oppressively hot postwar Tokyo summer, a young police detective's gun is pickpocketed as he travels on a bus; Murakami and a chief detective make heroic efforts to track it down. Piled atop the shame of losing a gun is the guilt of all the criminal activity subsequently committed it. Kurosawa's earliest masterpiece, though meandering somewhat at times.
