“Spectacular….among the most thrilling movie experiences a viewer can have!”—New York Times

Kurosawa’s riff on Shakespeare’s tragedy King Lear, Ran is the epic tale of an aging 16th-century warlord with a legacy of bloodshed who intends to divide his kingdom between his three disloyal sons. An unqualified visual triumph, the film features two beautifully choreographed, stunningly shot, and carnage-filled battle scenes that steal the show! Nominated for four Oscars including Best Director, Ran won the 1985 award for Costume Design; Kurosawa later accepted a Lifetime Achievement award from the academy. (160 mins., DCP)
