Audience Reviews for Ran (1985)

This retelling of King Lear is a cornucopia of lush colors and textures. From the Kabuki theatrics to the immense & bloody battles, Ran delivers on all cylinders.

Kurosawa's deep appreciation of John Ford can be seen through out this film. His use of master shots and landscapes allows the viewer to actually understand the tactics being used in the battles. A refreshing change from the "everything's a closeup" phase current cinema seems to be in

One of the more interesting Shakespeare adaptations. Akira Kurosawa takes King Lear and sets in in Japan. A little too long but it's beautiful imagery is what makes this film good.

Kurosawa does King Lear. Battle scenes that influenced every movie after it.
