Film Review

By Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat

 

Rising Sun
Directed by Philip Kaufman
20th Century Fox Home Entertainment 07/93 DVD/VHS Feature Film
R - strong sexuality, language, some violence

Rising Sun is an intelligent and sophisticated screen adaptation of Michael Crichton's bestselling novel. Sean Connery carries the film on his shoulders, managing to be both crafty and charismatic as a semi-retired Los Angeles cop who knows Japanese ways. Rising Sun is a three-fold triumph — it's an engaging mystery thriller, an expose of corporate hardball, and a portrait of tense Japanese-American relations in an era of global economic warfare.
