"Spectacular! Among the most thrilling movie experiences a viewer can have!"—Terrence Rafferty, New York Times

Kurosawa's riff on Shakespeare's tragedy King Lear, Ran is the epic tale of an aging 16th-century warlord with a legacy of bloodshed who intends to divide his kingdom between his three disloyal sons. Two beautifully choreographed, stunningly shot, carnage-filled battle scenes steal the show! Nominated for four Oscars including Best Director, it won for Costume Design. (160 mins., 35mm)
