Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This review and rating are for the Mei Ah DVD of Drunken Angel (or Alcoholic Angel, as the English subtitles onscreen have it). I've seen the Criterion version, and the difference in quality between the two is pretty well reflected in the price difference. The transfer here is rather murky by comparison, and many of the subtitles are unintentionally funny, but this is such a great film that it's well worth the price. The murkiness is even appropriate for the postwar slum setting of the film. Of course if you're a serious Kurosawa fan you'll want to get or rent the Criterion ... too bad they're so expensive in Canada.

A Gripping and haunting tale...Drunk Angel shows the various level human spirit can descend, ascend to and then back again. That even in the worst of us there can be some good. A doctor with a drinking problem tries to save a gangster (Toshiro Mifune) from TB and himself. Along the way a warped on and off friendship develops between the two. As the gangster stuggles with TB he also fights with the urge to make a name for himself as well as defend the only people who ever cared for him. As one reviewer puts it.........who really is the drunk angel?" Buy this movie and decide for yourselves. As usual great performance by Toshiro Mifune and a tale to remember by Kurosawa.

Toshiro Mifune stars as a brash yakuza gangster whose bellicose bullying of a meek, alcoholic local doctor lead to the discovery that he is actually dying of tuberculosis. Mifune's subsequent emotional transformation brings out the best in his ever-alluring acting style. Interesting early glimpse at the Japanses underworld, and another great film by director Akira Kurosawa.

The key to "Drunken Angel" is the two main characters, both flawed and somewhat nobel. Mifune is Matsunaga, a powerful gangster coming to grips with his own weakness. He has tuberculosis. Shimura plays Dr. Sanada, a good hearted doctor who's weakness for alcohol has left him in the lower depths of society. When Mifune arrives to be treated for a gunshot wound, Shimura sees something in him, and attempts to treat him for his TB.
This uneasy friendship, and the balance of the two characters as they get to know each other, is the strength of "Drunken Angel." Both performances are gripping. The plot involving a gang boss released from jail, allows the two characters to develop with each other. The direction is tight and controlled.
This is easily a masterpiece, from one of cinema's greatest directors.
