Walter Andrade’s review:
Probably my favorite Kurosawa.
It's really hard to choice between this one and High and Low. I really need to rewatch that awesome thriller to make up my mind, but Ran has such a powerful visual force, such a brilliant work of mise en scène, such a exhilarating and intelligent story that it's hard to imagine a better movie. Movies can be jut as good as Ran.
It's hard to even describe the emotion of watching this film. Such a great costumes, such a great set, so loyal to how they used to be 300 years ago and yet this story never seems old.
Feels like I need so many words but even if I can find them all, seems like something will be missing. In short, I think than Ran is the most pure artistic portrayal of life.
