Ran ★★★★★

Akira Kurosawa is one of my all time favourite directors. He’s a master at the craft. Seven Samurai is in my top 10 of all time, and Ran stands strong next to it. Ran is the definition of an Epic. The battle scenes are on a grand scale, while the emotional core runs through the entire film. Kurosawa actually made paintings as storyboards, and it shows because this is one of the most visually striking films of all time. The acting is fantastic, throughout there’s no weak link. I could say that about the entire film; there’s no weak link. If you haven’t had the chance to watch Ran or any Kurosawa film I strongly implore it.
