Throne of Blood 1957

Director Akira Kurosawa's magnificent rumination on Shakespeare's tragic "Macbeth" is a dark samurai drama set in feudal Japan. Two soldiers -- Washizu (Toshiro Mifune) and Miki (Minoru Chiaki) find themselves lost in a dense forest during a powerful thunderstorm. There, they encounter a ghostly old woman who predicts that Washizu will soon rise to power. Indeed, Washizu embarks on a murderously ambitious path and quickly fulfills the prophecy.

It really killed me that even when any of...

Throne of Blood Movie Review by Movie Addict (11/29/2008)

It is almost redundant to review this film as it has been done so many times in a spectacular fashion. Suffice it to say that it is one of Akira Kurosawa's masterpieces and certainly a more satisfying experience of Shakespeare than the boringly long soliloquies we are used to.
