Himalaya: Listen. Learn. Grow.
Stop me if you’ve heard this one before. A bandit, a samurai, and his bride walk into a grove and…. Oh wait, you have? How does it go? The bride falls in love with the bandit? But I thought she was traumatized and begged for her husband’s forgiveness. Wait, who’s the woodcutter in all this? And why is there a medium in court giving viable testimony? That’s right, our inaugural episode is on Akira Kurosawa’s Rashomon! Have a hard time remembering things? Well strap in, ‘cause you have no idea (and neither do we).
Cineppraisal is an audio commentary podcast, designed to be played alongside the movies we talk about. During the beginning of the episode, we will mention sync points to help match up our audio with the film.
