Tatsuya Nakadai: Lord Hidetora Ichimonji

Akira Kurosawa's crowning achievement...

"Man is born crying. When he has cried enough, he dies."

To movie aficionados and cinema enthusiasts, Akira Kurosawa's name is synonymous with the title of 'cinematic god'. It's irrefutable that throughout Kurosawa's career (spanning over several decades) the director has created wonderful narratives and absolutely magnificent visual delights. To some people Kurosawa is the greatest... read more

When I asked for an option of a good Japanese movie, I was introduced to Kurosawa's movies. Worried about being bored with a b&w, I chose Ran which was shot in 1985 in color. I am glad with my choice to being introduced to his work through 'Ran'. The version I saw was on DVD and the movie had gone through better color treatment and there was additional suppliments to the DVD which includes

Description: A story of Greed, a lust for power, and ultimate revenge. The Great Lord Hidetora Ichimonji (Tatsuya Nakadai) has decided to step aside to make room for the younger blood of his three sons, Taro (Akira Terao), Jiro (Jinpachi Nezu), and Saburo (Daisuke Ryu). The Lord's only wish now being to live out his years as an honored guest in the castle of each of his sons in turn. While the older two sons flatter their father, the youngest son attempts to warn him of the folly of expecting the three sons to remain united, enraged at the younger sons' attempt to point out the danger, the father banishes him. True to the younger sons' warni ... (more)

Movie Reviews (651-700) (50 movies items)

" Excellent epic war movie inspired by one of the literal greats - King Lear by Shakespeare and directed by one cinema legend, Akira Kurosawa. This film has one of the evilest female foxes portrayed on film that just spits venom and is death to know. Excellent production values with fantastic costume design, sets and an actual castle being built and burnt down is some of the many memorable images all over the film. "

1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die (1980's) (153 movies items)

" Notes: This movie is probably one of Akira Kurosawa's most famous work, probably his last masterpiece. If I recalled correctly Kurosawa actually spent decades prepping for this movie. Indeed, he began writing the film 10 years before its release and he spent also ten years storyboarding every shot in the film as paintings. This preparation went so far that ‘Kagemusha’, his previous directing effort and another movie with a very solid reputation, was actually a 'practice' for the great Japa"
