Rashoman and The Outrage

I saw the Akira Kurosawa film a few months back and on the recommendation of a friend I decided to see “The Outrage” which was another western based on a Kurosawa film. I was pleasantly surprised to see William Shatner as the priest.  Paul Newman even made a passable Mexican villain.  The other supporting cast played the parts very well and the cinema photography,  while not inventive, were true to the original.  There were a couple of things I felt The Out rage help clarify for me that I may have just missed in the original.  The ending especially made more sense to me in English.    I recommend watching them both within about a month of one another to appreciate the nuances of the original Japanese.
