An Evening with Tatsuya Nakadai (Feat. Kurosawa's RAN)

  • The Cinefamily 611 N. Fairfax Ave. Los Angeles, CA 90036 (map)

If ever the great actor Toshiro Mifune had competition - whether onscreen in YOJIMBO or simply in terms of ruggedly handsome good looks - it came in the form of Tatsuya Nakadai. With nearly 150 acting credits to his name, Nakadai is a Japanese and World Cinema screen legend. And he will appear in person on May 11th at The Cinefamily. Absolutely unbelievable. Although my personal favorite of Nakadai's numerous roles is as the abominable swordsman Ryunosuke Tsukue in Kihachi Okamoto's THE SWORD OF DOOM (1966), the Cinefamily programmers will screen Akira Kurosawa's truly epic King Lear adaptation RAN (1985). - SBP
