Ran 
Ran review
3/4 stars

It is the story of Lord Hidetora and his 3 sons Taro, Jiro, and Saburo. Taro has driven his father from the first castle. Hidetora visits his other son Jiro and likewise becomes disappointed. Taro orders his father to be banished. Screenplay was thought provoking with quotes from Hidetora – “We live in a dark world.” “Is this justice?” and from other characters - “They can't save us from ourselves.” “Men prefer sorrow over joy, suffering over peace. The score was haunting which was fitting for the mood of Hidetora’s situation. Themes of blasphemy, power, betrayal, sibling rivalry, virtues and vengeance were put in effect. Cinematography and locations of the shoot were splendid. The only qualms this reviewer had were the pacing and a bit of plot confusion. Ran maybe be somewhat depressing and violent, it shows the realities of life’s bitter trivialities of how others perceive it.
