best thanksgiving movie ever mhuaaahaahaaahaaa
seriouly this is like the 3rd time i watch this movie and i couldn't remember the actual story. but now i do. one needs notes to track all the bullshit going on.
anyway, good stuff. the long takes make me space out at times and start thinking of other things, and sure there's much better kurosawa movies, but still... his love of photographing cloth (see: aldous huxley's peyote books) is as evident here as it was in ran. gorgeous. even if the restored version has some contrast issues (maybe from the original?). eh, i ramble...
