The greatest screen adaptation of Shakespeare’s Macbeth is Akira Kurosawa’s visceral THRONE OF BLOOD (Kumonosu jô), starring Toshiro Mifune and Isuzu Yamada as the ambitious warrior and ruthless wife who try to murder their way to power and glory. Featuring some of the Japanese master’s most unforgettable, hallucinatory imagery, inspired by Noh theater as much as the classical source, this is Kurosawa at his atmospheric best.

    Comments about this product:

    When I first read the title "Throne of Blood" I almost passed this gem by.... but when I read it was an adaptation of Macbeth, I gave it a try. And I am so thankful I did.... this movie is amazing! Shakespeare and samurai... haunted forests and evil spirits, this movie has it all. And do not let the fact it's in Black and White deter you.... the use of lighting and shadows rivals some of the best black and white classics. My only real criticism of the movie is they should have stuck with the original Japanese title of "Spider's Web Castle", which, like the movie itself, is much more mysterious. I cannot stress how much fun this movie is, and a MUST have for old B&W movie fans like myself!!!
