Akira Kurosawa's THRONE OF BLOOD
A vivid, visceral Macbeth adaptation, Throne sets Shakespeare’s definitive tale of ambition and duplicity in a ghostly, fog-enshrouded landscape in feudal Japan. As a hardened warrior who rises savagely to power, Toshiro Mifune gives a remarkable, animalistic performance, as does Isuzu Yamada as his ruthless wife. Throne fuses classical Western tragedy with formal elements taken from Noh theater to create an unforgettable cinematic experience.
