The Third Murder (2017) – Japan, 124 minutes
When high-powered attorney Shigemori (Masaharu Fukuyama) takes on the defense of murder-robbery suspect Misumi (Koji Yakusho), he does so with reluctance, knowing that the man already provided a full confession and had been previously convicted of murder thirty years earlier. But as he digs deeper into the evidence and hears Misumi’s own conflicting testimony, the once confident Shigemori begins to doubt whether his client could be the murderer after all. A striking departure in genre and tone from Palme d’Or winner Hirokazu Kore-eda, The Third Murder is a gripping and morally complex crime procedural that incisively explores the meaning of truth and innocence. A Film Movement selection.
