3. The Racket-you’ve seen this movie before, trust me, and it wasn’t all that good

I’m not as familiar with Kurosawa as I’d like, but I’m already annoyed whenever I see his name these last few days because I missed out on the opportunity to see Ran in 4K in two different cities! First it played in NYC while I was in Cleveland, and now I find out it’ll be playing in Cleveland when I go back to NYC. Booooooo.
That being said, Macbeth is probably my favorite Shakespeare, so I couldn’t stay mad.
James Dean died for our sins.
No devil, all angel in you…
The boundary of madness and delirium is crossed…
