    Got to this film having seen the 'crows' scene and although i wasn't disappointed, that still remains my favourite. The colours are simply amazing.

    From a western view i found it particularly interesting trying to determine the line between Japanese culture and the straight up surreal, specifically in the first two
    pieces. As im sure was Kurosawa's intention some of the landscapes are beautiful and dreamlike, whilst others are artificial and almost cartoonish (mount fuji scene in particular). The implicit subject matter of the film, man's relationship with his environment, has a very Japanese feel to it, echoed in the theme of nuclear fallout. The assumed message, to treat nature with respect, is subtly imprinted throughout, although it is positively harrowing in the 'weeping demon' scene.

    Exceptional cinematography. This, Ran, Doodeskuden might as well constitute "Vibrant Colors" trilogy... 3 years 2 months ago
