Here’s a recent paper by Anis Pervez, a communication, cognition, and cinema researcher, that looks at Rashomon using a reader-response approach that is based on product reviews at Amazon.com. The abstract reads:
Rashomon, the celebrated film of Akira Kurosawa, was revisited to understand the process of sense-making in the film from a constructive perspective. Viewers’ comments at Amazon.com provided evidence of how these individuals observe the film and make sense of it by making distinctions. A reader-response analysis was used to interpret the comments. The researcher’s analysis is yet another scale of indication of observation of observation towards another level of meaning.
