Stray Dog (1949)

This 1949 thriller is one of master filmmaker Akira Kurosawa's most underrated films. This brilliant, understated film noir has a Japanese homicide detective losing his gun to a pickpocket on a crowded bus. Desperate and ashamed, he races through post-war Tokyo trying to recover the weapon before tragedy results. Star Toshiro Mifune is (as always) excellent in the lead role. An absolute "must see" for film lovers. 122 minutes
