First Look: Rashomon on Blu-ray

…and the newly-released Japanese Blu-Ray version.

Wow. Just…wow. Wildgrounds just took the Pepsi Challenge with two versions of Kurosawa’s 1950 epic Rashomon. The heretofore best release available, from prestige label the Criterion Collection, goes head-to-head with a new Blu-ray release from Japan, and clearly there’s no contest. You can see more shreenshot comparisons here, and until Criterion decides to do a Blu-ray release of their own you can order the Japanese version, which is compatible with North American machines, here.
