High and Low

High and Low (literally "Heaven and Hell") is a 1963 film directed by Akira Kurosawa, starring Toshiro Mifune, Tatsuya Nakadai and Kyoko Kagawa. It was loosely based on King's Ransom, an 87th Precinct police procedural by Ed McBain.

The Washington Post wrote of the film: High and Low is, in a way, the companion piece to Throne of Blood -- it's Macbeth, if Macbeth had married better. The movie shares the rigors of Shakespeare's construction, the symbolic and historical sweep, the pacing that makes the story expand organically in the mind.'
