Yoidore tenshi: Best Toho film I’ve seen thus far
Drunken Angel returns Toho to their bleak, dark roots and on this occasion it certainly worked no end.
It tells the story of the tremulous relationship between an alcoholic doctor and his violent mafia member patient. The doctor see’s his younger self in the Yakuza and set’s about going the extra mile to help him despite being fought every stage along the way.
After a series of mediocre Toho films I was already losing faith in the Kurosawa hype, therefore this came as a really pleasant surprise to me.
Powerful, hard hitting and wonderfully constructed Drunken Angel is by far the best Toho movie I’ve seen thus far.
Some poignant moments
Things I Learnt From This Movie:
Bullets come out of a persons body in the same condition they went in
I’d have let them get typhus……and that’s reason no.57579853789 why I should never have kids
Shimura is wonderful
I enjoy early Kurosawa more than the later one; I guess it has to do with social issues being addressed versus samurai codes of ethics. Takashi Shimura gives an outstanding performance as the frustrated doctor who’s surrounded by corruption and cowardice on all sides. The filthy pond full of industrial effluent and food waste symbolizes the world he has to struggle with, and his angry outbursts at the yakuza Mifune are wonderfully effective. Mifune, who reminds me of a Japanese Montgomery Clift, does a fine job of playing the menacing, tubercular thug who can’t stave off doom no matter what he tries.
