Ugetsu

Ugetsu ★★★★½

A film buddy of mine has been trying to make watch this film for months. I finally cave, and left mostly impressed. For starters I love the performances in Sansho the baliff more, but the themes here are just as powerful. Ambition and glory versus duty and honor. The idea of being tied to earthly things versus being lured away by the dream like spirit world. Ugetsu is just a beautiful, that probably deserves a rewatch.
