RAN (1985, Akira Kurosawa)

Well, I'm riding out the month with great 80s flicks. Didn't realize this one was out of print.
Gonna try this streamer and if it's bad I'll have to dig for my blu-ray. Highly recommended, btw. Kurosawa's take on Shakespeare's King Lear.

True. Actually the flag colors are an important storytelling device.



Though for the life of me I can't remember which color/faction ended up being triumphant!

Blue (right?). Since Red and Orange annihilate each other.

I really need to rewatch some Kurosawa films. A few years ago I tried 7 Samurai, Yojimbo, The Hidden Fortress, and Ran and none of them really clicked. I feel like I'm a more mature media watcher now and it's time for another try.

Give Throne of Blood a try. It's my fave. Macbeth adaptation. To me Kurosawa is contemplative not kinetic, though there's occasional excitement.
But if you're looking for flash I can see wondering what the fuss is about.

I'll check that dictionary, but in the meantime I'm impressed - as is everyone else in the world - by your eloquence, obvious accomplishments and success, and the evidence of your blazingly high intelligence.

That's a great one yes. Which one is the one about the doctor? I recommend that one too, funniest one I've seen besides 7 samurai
