Ran [Five Word Review]

The visual spectacle that is 'Ran'

Ran (Kurosawa, 1985)

Plot:   A merging and retelling of Shakespeare’s King Lear and a similar Japanese legend, relocated to Sengoku-era Japan and the children of the increasingly frenzied Hidetora, whose relationships with their ailing father become increasingly tumultuous when he decides to divide up his dwindling kingdom.

Boiled Down:   Epic.   Passionate.   Nihilistic.   PureCinema.   Stunning.

Rating:   5 out of 5 stars
