Ran (rewatch)

Posted by martinteller on December 3, 2005

Last time I said this wasn’t one of my favorites.  This time I warmed up to it a little more.  I find the exaggerated acting, intentional though it may be, a bit distracting.  And I’m still not sold on Kurosawa’s odd color schemes.  But it’s a masterful showcase of human drama, touching on loss, regret, vengeance, pride, greed, and loyalty.  I suppose I ought to read (or see) “King Lear” someday to get a fuller appreciation.  Rating: 9
