Ran

Ran ★★★★★

EXPLORING WORLD CINEMA - FILM #26

Ran was Kurosawa's final epic, and epic it is. The massive scale of the Japanese countryside, grand castles and battle sequences, the bombastic, bright-coloured costumes and sets, and the raw emotional storyline, all come together in a film that never once loses your attention throughout it's hefty (though not as long as Seven Samurai) runtime. Everything about this film is impressive and I honestly preferred it to Seven Samurai.
