  1. I picked this movie to watch and the podcast to listen to next because of William Shatner. I had no idea what this was about nor that it was a remake. I've heard of the name Rashoman, but did not know anything about it. As I watched this movie I looked up the trivia on IMDB and learned about the Japanese original.
    I liked the conversations between Shatner, Robinson and Da Silva the most. I'm still not sure what the true story was. I'm torn between the killer being Carrasco or the Husband killing himself. I don't believe the Wife's story. I only really know Laurence Harvey from playing Bowie in Wayne's The Alamo. And I've only seen Newman in a few westerns and he was unrecognizable in this film.
    The Baby, I don't understand where this baby came from and I kept waiting for some connection to be made between the baby and someone from the murder.
    The only Kurosawa film I've seen was Seven Samurai. This movie was interesting but I didn't love it.
