Guest Introduction by Paul Karasik.

Toshiro Mifune stars as a wealthy industrialist whose family becomes the target of a ruthless kidnapper in Akira Kurosawa’s exemplary film noir. Based on Ed McBain’s detective novel “King’s Ransom,” “High and Low” is both a riveting thriller and a brilliant commentary on contemporary Japanese society.


Paul Karasik has selected three films as prime examples of Must-See Film Noir. Paul is an Eisner Award winning cartoonist whose work has appeared in the New Yorker and whose graphic novels have been translated world-wide.



"One of the best detective thrillers ever filmed."--A.O. Scott, New York Times

"High and Low illuminates its world with a wholeness and complexity you rarely see in film."--Paul Attanasio, Washington Post
