Kurosawa’s RAN at Coral Gables Art Cinema

Mar 14-17, 2016

Considered Kurosawa’s final epic masterpiece the film RAN is Akira Kurosawa’s adaptation of Shakespeare’s King Lear. The great Tatsuya Nakadai is unforgettable as the 16th-century warlord who decides to abdicate in favor of his three sons, but the dominant force looming over every element of this film, down to the smallest detail, is Kurosawa himself.

Unusual for a foreign language film, Ran received four Oscar nominations, with Emi Wada winning for her dazzling, three-years-in-the-making costumes. The color palette is unlike that of any other movie made before or since, now on its stunning, 30th anniversary 4K restoration.
