Lady Kaede

…has the coolest samurai moves ever.

Ran, Akira Kurosawa, 1985, music by Tôru Takemitsu, which is a reason all by itself to see it.

This part is pretty good, too (and you get to hear some Takemitsu music).

Y’know, I think I like this version of “King Lear” best of all. (Too bad I keep seeing the performance Toshirô Mifune didn’t give.)
