The Third Murder
Quad Cinema
34 W. 13th Street, New York
This riveting legal drama is an intricate and surprising change of pace from acclaimed Japanese director and recent Palme d’Or winner Hirokazu Kore-eda (Still Walking, Shoplifters). A jaded defense attorney (Masaharu Fukuyama) reluctantly takes on the case of a factory worker and former convict who pleads guilty to the murder of his employer—and finds himself in deep water when the client’s story keeps changing. Is this man devising a sinister cover-up or simply losing his mind?
