What it shows about the state of Japanese culture and society so soon after the end of the war is interesting to observe, and some of the themes with which it is concerned had perhaps not been addressed cinematically prior to this. Nevertheless, although the film is certainly not without subtleties, these tend to be drowned out by the unsubtleties, so to speak.

Well crafted dive into the final stages of existence & that question everyone faces at the end of the day, are there any regrets, or have you deluded yourself into thinking you lived a fulfilled life? Watanabe realizes he needs to make up for lost time & that pseudo-vampiring youth from a colleague is a reasonable thing to do. Superficial pleasures attempted & found lacking, he pushes a redeeming project through a public system that's just as congested as his colon, for 'all the babies of Japan'

From a western perspective it's easy to undervalue the profoundly indifferent cynicism & pessimism that underline this well crafted drama. Seemingly sentimental & overacted piece of obvious social critique reveals radical nuance & subtle ambiguity in context of "Japanese culture." The 1st part plays out like a dream of an individual rediscovering himself & life. The 2nd part is more formal & overtly satirical utilising the Rashomon method brilliantly. Possibly too long and does lack naturalism.

The socratic element of the final third is reminiscent of 12 Angry Men, but the moralising within the dialogue feels much more contrived. The flashbacks to Watanabe's final weeks do compensate for this, and Takashi Shimura's performance is perfect, but I think Kurosawa works better when his social commentary is conveyed through dynamic choreography & drama (see High & Low). Ikiru's best scenes are focused on Watanabe's silent musings, desperation and pained expressions; when you escape into him.
