After seeing some of Kurosawas famous movies, like Seven Samurai (1954), Rashomon (1950) and Yojimbo (1961), I was really looking forward to Ran. Ran is an over 2 and a half hour long epic colorful masterpiece from probably one of the greatest japanese-director ever lived. Kurosawa uses the color for what is worth and gives the audience a spectaceluar show. The costumes, extras and sets are absolutely amazing. Good performances from the cast, specially Tatsuya Nakadai (56 year old at the time), which plays the 80-year old Lord Hidetora. A movie worth watching!
