Ran ★★★★★

This is so brutal. I'm a big softie most of the time and can conjure up empathy for just about anyone (especially old people...) but this film put me right through the wringer. I know Hidetora is a warlord who, by his success, has been the cause of a whole lot of violence and tragedy but I still felt bad for him... I mean watching him lose everything and transform into a crazy wandering ghost where his past is haunting him at every turn is just ouch.

It's everything you've heard. The colours are vibrant and the narrative is complex. A must see.
