"A form of cinematic punctuation very strongly identified with Kurosawa is the wipe. This effect is created through an optical printer, in which, when a scene ends, a line or bar appears to move across the screen, “wiping” away the image while simultaneously revealing the first image of the subsequent scene. In Rashomon the use of the wipe emphasizes motion in traveling shots, marking narrative shifts and marking temporal ellipses between actions.” (x)
