The Third Murder
Hirokazu Kore-eda / JP, 2017 / 124 min.
Anyone familiar with Hirokazu Kore-eda’s taut family dramas such as Like Father, like Son and After the Storm, will be surprised by The Third Murder, a courtroom thriller built on dialogue. The verbal fireworks between defence and prosecution serve as the backdrop for observations on law and justice, while murder suspect Takashi Misumi looks on in the dock.
