In 1986, 76-year-old Akira Kurosawa shot his most epic yet intimate film in his decades long career, a Japanese adaptation of William Shakespeare's King Lear titled Ran. The film would become one of Kurosawa's most well-known works and would garner him his last Academy Award nomination for Best Director and would win for Best Costume Design. But does the film deserve the honors it recieved or should it suffer great tragedy? MovieDude Eric, Kent & Chris find out.
