In this episode, Jon, Mark, and Aven watch and discuss Akira Kurosawa's 1985 movie Ran. A fusion of King Lear with Japanese history, Ran is an incredibly intricate, well-made, and bleak movie so rich with detail and reinterpretation that any discussion on it could last well beyond its nearly three-hour running time.
