Ran (1985)

This grand epic from the 75-year-old Japanese master Akira Kurosawa is one of his finest achievements. Crafted from Shakespeare's King Lear, it concerns an aged warlord who wishes to divide his kingdom up between his three sons (instead of daughters in the Shakespeare play), but wishing to keep his title and power. Of course, what the warlord has in mind and what transpires are not the same thing. The first son is killed by the second, and the third -- who was banished by his father -- remains loyal. The real powerhouse of the story is Mieko Harada as the superbly evil Lady Kaede who marries and influences two of the brothers. read more...

The Bourne Ultimatum (2007)

Unusual for a trilogy, The Bourne Ultimatum happily stays on the same high level of quality and intelligence as its predecessors (The Bourne Identity, from 2002, and The Bourne Supremacy, from 2004). Directed by Paul Greengrass and written by Tony Gilroy, Scott Z. Burns and George Nolfi, based on Robert Ludlum's novel, the film whizzes by in a fog of logical-sounding dialogue. Unlike most summer movies, it demands that the audience keep up, and only occasionally stoops to over-explaining when things get too obtuse. read more...

Seven Samurai (1954)

No other Japanese filmmaker so inspired, or was inspired by, Western culture more than Akira Kurosawa. Perhaps that's why Seven Samurai (1954), an epic, 3 1/2 hour action movie remains so popular in the US. read more...

The Bourne Identity (2002)

As the "Ben vs. Matt" action hero of the summer skirmish comes to a head, Mr. Damon emerges victorious and smiling his eerily perfect, white smile. The Bourne Identity is a smashing success, and it makes Mr. Affleck's dead-in-the-water The Sum of All Fears seem like yesterday's straight-to-video trash. read more...

Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World (2003)

Russell Crowe's gigantic new epic took three major league studios to finance (Titanic only took two), and it certainly has the look of one of those overly inflated and unbelievably boring white elephants specifically designed to win Oscars. read more...
