Entertainment Weekly - 06/23/2000
"...A small gangster/neorealist masterpiece..." -- Rating: A-
USA Today - 07/07/2000
"...One of Akira Kurosawa's early significant movies....The director reaps a lot of atmosphere here shooting in muddy street settings..."
Uncut - 10/01/2005
"Kurosawa's noirish melodrama has a lyricism and depth his epics don't always achieve."
Sight and Sound - 10/01/2005
"With its central image of a thick, toxic pond, the film makes potent use of disease as a metaphor for the state of post-war Japan."
