  1. Daniel S.'s rating of the film Ran

  2. shahimsheikh's rating of the film Ran

    Taro and Jiro's attack on the Third Castle is the most dramatic depictions of hell ever put on film. The smoke, ash, mist, blood, fire, red flags create a mortifying yet beautiful sequence. Nakada gives his best performance as an ageing Lord made to face the repercussions of his own vanity. Kurosawa's career has no shortage of visually brilliant films. This might just be the best of that lot. A bonafide masterpiece.

  3. Liam Grieves's rating of the film Ran

    Hidetora's descent into hell is absolutely the most stunning large-scale battle sequence ever committed to celluloid.

  4. pinoeye's rating of the film Ran

    So far my fav by Kurosawa

  5. erikdylansr's rating of the film Ran

    Kurosawa's best late career film is a phenomenal glimpse into familial responsibility and the weight of the crown.

  6. Renton47's rating of the film Ran

    Enormous pictorial beauty in one of Kurosawa's most classical creations, in maybe every sense but its hopelessness. It's a last-gasp statement (even if not quite) that suggests a lifetime depicting the honour and nobility of samurai codes is not transferable to the battles fought by rulers or their soldiers. Thematically it's neat 'sins of the father' stuff but that image is magisterial.

  8. Steve's rating of the film Ran

    My favourite Shakespeare play re-imagined. Perfectly rendered from the tiniest nuance of dialogue to the glorious spectacle of the battle scenes. Skills that run from "Spartacus" to "Game of Thrones", but they were never done better than here.

  9. wickermama's rating of the film Ran

  10. Xiang Li's rating of the film Ran

    Beautiful, brutal, ironic

  11. Peter Bicarregui's rating of the film Ran

    An epic, the scale of everything is outrageous and completely brings the world to life. Everything is perfect, the acting, the score and the scenery

  12. yann.coillot's rating of the film Ran

  13. Gilbert Aitken's rating of the film Ran

    One of the all time greats, I've seen this film over and over again, I have never tired of it!

  14. Gallus's rating of the film Ran

    3.5 - No better than Seven Samurai, Rashomon and other films Kurosawa has ever done in his lifetime, but still one of the great films of its time. Great acting, directing, costume and production design, a brilliant score, and great use of color and movement. However, sometimes the pacing kills the mood of the movie, and Throne of Blood is still his best Shakespeare adaptation.

  15. Adam Laurence Pitt's rating of the film Ran

  16. mis marg's rating of the film Ran

    Sound and Fury, still not a fan thereof, 4 stars for the horse trappings and the sad story of the fathers misjudgement and his subsequent denouement.

  17. Dean Simons's rating of the film Ran

  18. Mike's rating of the film Ran

    Being familiar with King Lear, I found the opening to be slightly sluggish, as there were no great deviations from the play, which takes its time to "set up" the rest of the story. This lent the impression that it might be a simple retelling. However, after the slow opening it really came into its own, and the final act is terrific. Visually stunning throughout and very well acted.

  19. Alethea's rating of the film Ran

    4.6 - Drinking game: Take a shot every time someone falls off a horse.

  20. Luke Shanahan's rating of the film Ran

    Kurosawa demonstrates Shakespeare's universality in this adaptation. Lear's structure and thematic concerns are maintained but the result is wholly unique and pure cinema. His use of colour and composition keeps the story coherent, subtitles aren't really necessary. Ran doesn't abandon its theatrical roots either. The expansive production design is tactile and blocking is an important tool in the conflict. Masterful.

  21. Steve's rating of the film Ran

    Loved King Lear as a teenager so really enjoyed this. Visually amazing, well acted and Lady Kaede, what a villain!

  22. F&A's rating of the film Ran

    The perfect visual experience! Every single frame is a beautiful painting! The symmetry, the colours, the music, the cinematographic "choreography", the lovely transitional shots; every little detail is perfect!

  23. David Pascoe's rating of the film Ran

    A masterpiece. It’s a great story anyway and Kurosawa & co don’t miss a beat. The gender reversals work well, but it’s the slow burn revenge plots that show just how inhumanity gets passed on in a seemingly unending cycle. We have progressed since then, but at times, only just. It’s a superb film, worth every good word written and spoken about it.

  24. JamieM's rating of the film Ran

    Every aspect of the presentation in 'Ran' is top notch, from the use of distinct colours for each faction to the electrifying shot compositions. The initial pacing is slow, but it pays off before long, thus revealing an epic of family, legacy, corruption of power and the futility of war. Another great Shakespeare adaptation from Kurosawa for sure.
