Stray Dog

Here's a another obscure classic from the East, this is called Stray Dog, it's one of Akira Kurosawa's earlier films made in 1949. It's about a Police Officer who loses his gun and his attempts to find it in the shitty underbelly of Post-War Japan . To be perfectly honest I'm not really into the Samurai epics he made. They are absolutely stunning to look at but I just find them sort of...dull. I much prefer the more suburban life films he did, Drunken Angel is also great. This one also has Toshiro Mifune in one his early roles
