131 – Ran (1985)

I'm losing it buddy....

Ran is about the dangers of letting a series of strokes go unnoticed and the debilitating effects it can have on the cognitive and basic functioning of man.Well maybe that’s not the main theme of the film but there are three or four i noticed.That proverb;power corrupts and all that.That’s a big theme,in the beginning when everyone is equal things are good but as the plot progresses and power become an issue that’s when we see so called ‘family’ do some rather rash things.Another proverb that i think is quite apt in describing this film is;behind every good man is a good wife,or something to that effect.However in this case it should read:behind every good man is a conniving evil ,power hungry,psycho bitch.Putting all that aside for a moment,i found Ran to be an enjoyable yearn.There’s some really good action scenes,one notable scene is the fight at tower 2 with the old lord still remaining in the tall tower.The fire looked so real,not a fake gas burner to be spotted.The ending seemed a little like Hamlet in the way that every notable character got kiiled and wiped out in the final scene.
