Ran (1985)



It is a really nice film. However, it almost felt strange to me that in the end the bad guy was in fact not a guy but a woman. Wow, she is so manipulative. Nowadays, no scriptwriter would even dare thinking about such scenarios.

On the film, women are of course a minority. Women's importance (besides the fox) is also non-existent. So we could tag this film as machist. But that is how films where at that time and that is how society worked at the hypothetical age of the film. Nice. It felt nice to see a movie well done without present times biases. As always, I enjoyed this work by the genius that Kurosawa was.
