Ran by Akira Kurosawa( Visual )

155 editions published between 1985 and 2016 in 10 languages and held by 2,895 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Akira Kurosawa's brilliantly conceived re-telling of Shakespeare's King Lear magically mixes Japanese history, Shakespeare's plot and Kurasawa's own feelings about loyalty in the epic masterpiece, RAN. Set in the 16th century Japan, an aging ruler, Lord Hidetora, announces his intention to divide his land equally among three sons. This decision to step down unleashes a power struggle between the three, when Hidetora falls prey to the false flattery bestowed upon him by the two older sons and banishes the youngest when he speaks the truth. The ruthless betrayal ultimately drives the Hidetora insane, destroying his entire family and kingdom

Kwaidan by Masaki Kobayashi( Visual )

8 editions published between 2000 and 2015 in Japanese and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After more than a decade of sober political dramas and social-minded periodpieces, the great Japanese director Masaki Kobayashi shifted gears dramatically for this rapturously stylized quartet of ghost stories. Featuring colorfully surreal sets and luminous cinematography, these haunting tales of demonic comeuppance and spiritual trials, adapted from writer Lafcadio Hearn's collections of Japanese folklore, are existentially frightening and meticulously crafted. In The black hair, a poor young samurai leaves his first wife to marry a rich woman. When he is unhappy in his second marriage, he returns to his first wife, who at first appears unchanged from when he last saw her. In The woman of the snow, a woodcutter is spared by a mysterious ghost-like woman in the snow, but must promise never to tell anyone what he has seen. In Hoichi, the earless, a blind musician-monk named Hoichi is commanded by a gathering of ghosts to sing the saga of their ancient deeds.
