"One of the most exquisite spectacles ever made, a color-coordinated epic tragedy of carnage and betrayal—passionate, somber, and profound.” —New York Magazine

Kurosawa transposes King Lear to feudal Japan for this epic masterpiece, considered by the director to be the “culimination” of his career. The film’s most enthralling sequence is the fiery siege upon Lord Hidetora’s castle set only to the sound of Tōru Takemitsu’s hypnotic score—one of the ultimate moviegoing experiences.
