  1. lbunuel's rating of the film Ran

    I don't think the last 30 minutes of the film are on the same level as the rest, but that means basically nothing - this is a sublime work throughout. The best war scenes ever committed to the screen; a profound reimagining of Shakespeare's text; an unrivaled sense of pacing and mise-en-scene by a master in complete control of his powers.

  2. Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film Ran

    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 in presence. Excellent production values with fantastic costume design, sets and an actual castle being built and burnt down is some of the many memorable images in the film.

    Beautiful costume drama

  7. LuísMarques's rating of the film Ran

  8. Christopher McQuain's rating of the film Ran

    An iconic narrative re-structured like a piece of music, -- an edifice engaged in a relationship with the images in which each of these dimensions perfectly supports, justifies, and "earns" the particular, precise, exquisite movements and contours of the other.

  9. MistaRichard's rating of the film Ran

    Outstanding; Kurosawa is a truly peerless director.

  10. Dada Kubin's rating of the film Ran

    Kinship counts for nothing when you want to achieve power, and evil deeds will always be revenged. With much blood. That’s the essence of Shakespeare, and Kurosawa knows how to bring it on film. The perfect marriage of a strong story and visionary cinematography.

  11. FISCHER's rating of the film Ran

    Malgré certaines longueurs, le film déroule un magnifique esthétisme entre humanisme et parabole qui peut séduire ou lasser...

  12. Alex Holland's rating of the film Ran

    A true masterpiece. Not only one of Kurosawa's grandest achievements, but an achievement for the history of cinema. Words can't express how much I love Ran.

  13. Chris's rating of the film Ran

    a complete and total masterpiece in every aspect from acting to narrative to visuals... i love kyoami...

  14. Freddie's rating of the film Ran

    The color cinematography is amazing.

  15. Alexander Dunkelberger's rating of the film Ran

    I'm surprised the old man made it so long. Throughout most of the the nearly three hour runtime, the one time ruler of large and expansive land in feudal Japan looks on the verge of death. He doesn't die of old age, or in battle, or of illness, unless a broken spirit can be called such a malady. But the breaking of a man's spirit, usually, has nothing to do with sickness, but is an act of violence.

  17. Loud Rocks's rating of the film Ran

  18. Nelson Núñez's rating of the film Ran

    Una película que combina lo íntimo y lo épico revelando los aspectos menos amables de la humanidad: traición, codicia, ambición, violencia y muerte. La primera batalla en el tercer castillo constituye una de las secuencias más espectaculares y sobrecogedoras que he visto en mi vida. Igualmente la secuencia final que finaliza con Tsurumaru al borde del precipicio es devastadora. Un film pesimista y desolador.

  19. Elephants_Gerald's rating of the film Ran

    When I was 17, I watched this movie and thought it was boring. My only question now is how I can go back in time and kick my own ass. This is truly one of the greatest movies I've seen in my life.

  20. Ozu_Teapot's rating of the film Ran

  21. Lintang A.'s rating of the film Ran

    Kurosawa's most impacting picture and his very best.

  22. Quattro's rating of the film Ran

    Much could be written about this immense masterpiece, but the words would never match up with the images. Everything about Ran is grand, gorgeous, powerful. Breathtaking.

  23. Christopher M. Jones's rating of the film Ran

    "Everything I set out to accomplish, I achieved."

  24. schellenberg's rating of the film Ran

    A tragic masterpiece of colour, character and 'chaos'
