Kurosawa's fourth color film is a brilliant translation of Shakespeare's KING LEAR. A landmark movie in the career of an already internationally renowned artist, its elegant cinematic architecture bursts with color at moments where traditional movie logic would fail. RAN defined Kurosawa's career for a generation of international film fans.
Directed by Akira Kurosawa; 1985; 162 min,; 35mm (In Japanese with English subtitles.) (Print and screening license permissions from Rialto Pictures.)
