Brett C (au) wrote: As I keep going further and further into Kurosawa, the more respect and appreciation I gain for him. For a couple of weeks, I have regarded Rashomon as my favorite Kurosawa, and when I do watch it again, I'm going to bump up the rating I have given for it because it definitely is one of his strongest work. But now I just finished Ikiru, and I finally found a Kurosawa film that matches the love and excitement I had for Rashomon. Ikiru is an excellent film, that hits the audience in all the right places.Ikiru was written by Akira Kurosawa, Shinobu Hashimoto and Hideo Oguni. They have written a wonderful screenplay about a man who is aware of how much time he has left in the world, and what he's going to do about it. The film feels very genuine on the decisions and thoughts a man would have with a person who is aware of his fate. We go through the greediness and indulgence that one would lean on in order to fulfill the void that is life. It's even more clear with our protagonist as it's explained early on the film that he doesn't seem to be living life and he has been empty and dead for so many years because of the job he has. The film explores the idea of humans not living our lives because we want to work and earn money in order to get the things that we suggest are "important". The office jobs that our character takes never gives this sense of reward, even if he receives a certificate from his employer and peers, as we are placed behind a desk and we never see what we actually get done. As public servants, they're supposed to be there to help and represent the public, acting on their best interest. It seems these officials or "chiefs" seem to only care about their ego. The writers were able to give us more detail on our protagonist's backstory and reasons for his current state, career-wise, in order for the audience to understand and empathise, rather than just pity him for not having any sense of awareness. The film is essentially a journey of filling a void that our character has that hasn't been filled for a long time, which is his sense of purpose in the world; it used to be his son but as time passes, it seems his son needs and loves him less and less now. It was really interesting and entertaining on how he looks for this purpose, and the writers successfully made me want to invest in understanding him. The film explores the concept of a bureaucracy and how the system works. I am not very good when it comes to politics, as I don't seem to have any passion to go deep into it, but the writers have done a great job on making me understand it, even if these were the conditions and values of the government back then and maybe unrelatable to the conditions and ethics of the government of today. I had no issues with the film's dialogue, as a lot of the moment really hit the spots that could make some weep or heartbroken, but I'm a tough shell to crack and only specific things make me teary. The use of the voice-over by a unknown third person, during some moments of the film, like the start explaining his current state was a bit annoying at first, but I think it wouldn't be a big issue during subsequent viewings.Ikiru was directed by Akira Kurosawa, and this was released and made during a time when he was on a roll, making great films, one after the other. Ikiru is an excellent film and probably one of the most deepest and intimate films he has made. Some of his films, he likes to keep the audience at a distance, in order to see more of the situation, but Ikiru keeps us stuck to the protagonist throughout the film. We go through this journey with him, and very rarely are we given a scene that doesn't have or focus on him. Kurosawa wanted us to realise that this man is a symbol of a person who can change their entire life around in such a small amount of time. He wants us to remember that, we don't have to live the repetitive, dull, mediocre life. Life is precious, and it's sad to see people being lazy and just wasting their life away, not doing something productive with it; Kurosawa understood this completely, as we see our protagonist planning to waste his life with drinking, partying and having fun, then change to have his last few precious moments of his life be dedicated to something that would be beneficial to others, and also evidently himself. Kurosawa managed to not make a film like this too melancholy, with some moments that had me laughing, like the scene where he was drunk and walking across the street, pretty much the entire sequence when he was with the man that supposedly was going to show him how to live. But when the sad moment hits, they definitely hit, there was a scene that was really heartbreaking, and if I was much older and having similar emotions as he does then I would weep too, it was the scene where he sing that song at that party, and everyone just stops having fun and was either moved and reflecting on their own life, or they were disturbed as he was bringing the buzz down. Ikiru has a lot of memorable moments and the bulk of this is due to Kurosawa's direction. I think Ikiru was well paced, though the ending dragged just a little bit, but the content was strong enough to prevent it from being boring or unnecessary.The film's director of photography was Asakazu Nakai, who has also worked on other Kurosawa films, including Red Beard, Seven Samurai and Throne of Blood. I don't consider Ikiru's photography to be gorgeous or groundbreaking, as for the most of it are things that we have seen before. It may not have the beauty that Rashomon has but it does create that intimacy and depth that no other Kurosawa film, at least that I have seen, has ever done. Nakai seems to capture our protagonist in a way that successfully transcends the character's feelings of gloom and doom, particularly during the start of the film. Nakai then shifts it during the third act, by making it seem more uplifting and hopeful, while still keeping that intimacy intact. Most Kurosawa films that I have seen are in black and white, and in doing this always made me become more invested and focused on the more important and thought provoking aspects of his films; It heightens the performance of it's actors and it depicts emotion at a more dramatic level, seeing images as dark or light, rarely anything in between. There were surprisingly a couple of gorgeous shots in this film, even if the black and white strips the image off it's depth in texture, one of the scenes was the shot that captured our protagonist and another figure as black silhouettes and the imagery behind them were a bunch of clouds being highlighted by the sun as it sets.The film's score was composed by Fumio Hayasaka, who also has worked on a couple of films with Kurosawa. Hayasaka's score for Ikiru was beautiful. It was able to create certain emotions in his score and be emphasised in a naturalistic way with Nakai's imagery and Takashi Shimura's performance. I also adored the way the Happy Birthday was used as it connects with the idea that this our protagonist has grew emotionally and that this day is a start of his new self.The film was mostly carried by Takashi Shimura and he brought a very strong performance; I think he deserved a win from the BAFTA nominee he gained from this film. Shimura brought so much sadness to his character, and his performance was one of the main reasons why the emotions of the film were so strong. This was definitely his best role and deserves a lot more praise from it. This ranks up there as the best performance from an actor in a Kurosawa film, right alongside Toshiro Mifune in Red Beard.Ikiru may be too sad for some, but one can really gain a lot from watching it. The film showed us on how to not waste our life and make something significant out of it. Ikiru sports an amazing performance from Takashi Shimura, an emotional score from Fumio Hayasaka, and great direction from Akira Kurosawa. Ikiru, along with Rashomon, are worthy of being alongside with the most important and greatest films of all time
