Man is born crying. When he has cried enough he dies.

Don’t know if we’re getting the re-release over here but Ran is one of my favourite films (also one of my Dad’s).

Edit: GRRM has posted a review of RAN by John Jos Miller over at Not a Blog.

I‘m normally not a fan of unrelenting despair – and RAN is one hundred and sixty two minutes of uninterrupted gloom that concludes with one of the bleakest scenes I’ve seen on film – but a masterpiece is a masterpiece.
