Stray Dog

Stray Dog ★★★★

This movie holds up quite well on the re-watch. I just re-read my earlier review from five years ago and don't have much to add here. I will say that having now watched all of Kurosawa's 1940s films, I think this one is the best. This four-movie streak, though--One Wonderful Sunday, Drunken Angel, The Quiet Duel, and Stray Dog is not talked about enough. Quite impressive.

I don't know much about Scandal, which connects this streak to Rashomon in the chronology, but I'm looking forward to finding out next week.
