I feel sure that Mr. Kurosawa could have come up with a more constructive thought on how people should use their energies to pacifistic purpose than the negative one he gives us here.
A compelling look at postwar Japan as well as the onset of Cold War paranoia.
A rough adaptation of King Lear, just as was "Ran" that Kurosawa made 30 years later. Not without its problems, but any Kurosawa is better than the Cineplex crap in your local neighborhood.
I Live in Fear shows that Kurosawa is far from content with humanity, but that doesn't mean he's given up hope entirely.
