  1. High and Low

    Has anyone seen the 1963 Japanese film "High and Low" directed by Akira Kurosawa? Without giving away any spoilers, the story centers around an industrialist named Gondo who strives to rise to the top of a big shoe company in order to sell his own innovative product; however, he soon becomes the target of a kidnapping and has to deal with the ethical dilemma of sacrificing his own money. Gondo seems to have some objectivist qualities and is very proud of his work. The film also centers around a police organization trying to track down the kidnapper, as it is also a thrilling detective story, with the police using logic and reasoning in attempting to find the culprit. Although it is not a very romantic film, it holds some great qualities which objectivists may find interesting.
