"A bold examination of humanity, unrivaled in the history of film. Kurosawa's greatest work, in my opinion."

My favourite Asian movies (30 movies items)

"Original Title: 'Ran' Country: Japan Directed by: Akira Kurosawa Plot: An elderly lord abdicates to his three sons, and the two corrupt ones turn against him. Note: If I recalled correctly Akira Kurosawa spent decades prepping for this movie. For example, Kagemusha was just 'practice' before creating this. Anyway, this is definitely a very good movie and is considered as Kurosawa's last masterpiece. "

A very good movie

“I can’t believe I haven’t seen any movies directed by Akira Kurosawa for such a long time. A few years ago, I was doing a good job and ended up watching 13 of his movies but, by now, it has been almost 10 years since I saw another one of his movies. It is a real shame but maybe I will pick it up again later on. Anyway, this flick is probably one of his most famous ones, probably his last masterpiece. If I recalled correctly Akira 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 g” read more

100 Essential Female Film Performances (99 movies items)

"Meiko Harada In adapting King Lear, Kurosawa opted to substitute Shakespeare’s female leads for the men with whom he was always more attuned. Fortunately, the final product doesn’t dispense with femininity altogether: the collective wrath of The Bard’s discarded women finds an outlet in the vengeful figure of Lady Kaede. Her clear template is Lady Macbeth, but in the hands of Harada that example is exploded to its most embittered potential. Her initially dulcet, eloquent diction barely con"
