I want to know if "Farewell My Concibune" is any good and I want to know if Akira Kirosawa's "Ran" has good image quality or if a bettr release is coming out.

I think the general concensus on Ran is if you can wait for the possibility of a better version, do it. The one from Fox Lobor is kind of weak. I believe there is an import version available, but I haven't seen or heard of anyone who has seen it yet. Personally I'm more interested in the story/movie itself so I went ahead and picked it up

WRT FMC from what I remember the xfer was pretty good and the sound was decent. If you like the story it's worth picking up. Personally I thought it dragged at times, but overall I wasn't too disappointed with it.

Ooooh! I didn't know Farewell My Concubine was out!! I love this movie... even if the DVD didn't have any perks, I'd buy it!

If the import of "Ran" you're referring to is from Mei Ah, well... I haven't seen any myself, but the word is that all the Kurosawa titles on Mei Ah are very poorly done, especially the subtitles. As much as I want Red Beard, Ikiru, and all the others, I've avoided buying the Mei Ah editions because of the reputation.

Actually, the Fox Lorber release of "Ran."
