Click it! One of my favorite Kurosawa films (but then again, there really aren't any that aren't favorites ), I highly suggest this for anyone who digs their noir sweltering and stifling. It's a grungy little film that drags your ass through the muck and mire of the slums, bars, and streets of post-war Tokyo, essentially in search of a man's lost dignity. Mifune is great in this as the detective, proving he doesn't need to wield a samurai sword to carry a film . Check it out.
