Product Description

Stray Dog' DVD, Akira Kurosawa (1963), New & Sealed

The policemen's desperate race to capture the 'stray dog' who has Murakami's gun before he turns rabid plays out as a series of invigorating set pieces. The most impressive one is an extended, wordless sequence that occurs near the start of the film where Murakami silently and persistently tracks an accomplice of the pickpocket as she goes about her day. Her attempts to slip away from him are played for laughs, but they're also grippingly exciting. The subsequent bit where Murakami attempts to look desperate enough so that he might attract an arms dealer is almost as well done. The close-up of Mifun's darting eyes that's superimposed over the scenes of tawdry city life remind us that he's always alert, even as the actor undergoes a physical transformation that convinces us that he's becoming one of the masses. His immersion in the grimy subculture (and simultaneous loss of innocence) is credible enough that it changes the tone of the film as it goes along. Mifune's performance is far more natural here than usual, and his expressions subtly chart his character's gradual comprehension of the harshness of the world that surrounds him. Even if he still feels responsible for the crimes that the man with his gun is committing, his idealistic perception of the world changes because the aggressive sleaze that fills it is so undeniable.
