DVD Discussion Group: Ran

The basic premise of this meetup is the same as a book club, only with a movie instead. We select a movie on DVD in advance, and we each watch the movie separately at our convenience. Then we get together to discuss it for an hour or so on the third Monday of each month.

C'ville Coffee is a nice space; food and drink is available, and the parking is good.

This month we'll discuss Ran (1985), the last major film by the great director Akira Kurosawa. George will open the discussion, and then we will all get to express our opinions, reactions, and ideas about the film.

"An elderly lord abdicates to his three sons, and the two corrupt ones turn against him." (

For more information and to see a trailer, go to

*Where Can I Find This Movie?:*
For a DVD copy, try local video stores, especially Sneak Reviews; Netflix; the public library (; and the UVa library (if you are affiliated with UVa). It may also be available on streaming from services such as: Netflix, Amazon, Youtube, Hulu, etc. Let George know if none of these will work for you.

If you have any questions or comments, you can always get in touch with me by clicking here:

Hope to see you there!

    There's currently a "very long wait" on Netflix for this one. Other options: you can buy or rent it on Amazon Streaming for as little as $2.99, and it's also available on iTunes and some other services:­ And you can always try Sneak Reviews.
