Chaos Reigns


Purchase on AmazonAkira Kurosawa's Ran is currently running on Mubi.

I was lucky enough to see it when it premiered in theaters back in 1985, and I credit the movie for awakening my interest in Japanese cinema in particular and Japan generally.

It loses a little something when you watch it on a TV or a phone, but it's worth seeing in any form you can find it in.

Side note: There's still no good domestic BD version of the film. I've linked to an import (Region B, sigh) because it uses a remaster not used by the atrocious Studio Canal edition. Criterion was all set to bring out their own version, but lost the rights, and so us poor suckers in the U.S. have to either go cost-plus from overseas or make do with an atrocious mastering job that wouldn't have been fit for satellite broadcast.
