I Live in Fear

This 1955 film is one of master filmmaker Akira Kurosawa's more obscure. It's one of star Toshiro Mifune's most transformative roles too. Kurosawa's longtime hero stars as a crusty family patriarch who tries to sell off his factory and move to Brazil due to his growing fear of the H-bomb. The tragedies of Hiroshima and Nagasaki occurred a mere 10 years before Kurosawa shot this sharp piece of pop culture paranoia, and the film is one of the best studies of mid-century nuclear fear (with a dose of King Lear mixed in for good measure). In Japanese with English subtitles. 113 minutes
