Ran ★★★★★

the son of a bitch made my least favourite play a masterpiece, he was too powerful. jaw dropping in every single way, the most emotionally resonant any Kurosawa picture has been for me to date, has some of the greatest use of landscape and colour I’ve ever seen in my life, fixes every issue I’ve had with the play since it was first introduced to me and actually makes the events that occur feel like a seismic tragedy. beneath all the swarm of soldiers and haze of bullets constantly plaguing the screen, there’s this overwhelming sense of regret for every part you’ve played in the world that’s disintegrating around you. feel like the atmosphere will haunt me for the rest of my life.
