Throne Of Blood (Kumonosu jô)
Cert: 15 Year: 1957 Length: 105 mins Language: Japanese
Toshiro Mifune, Isuzu Yamada, Minoru Chiaki.
In this feudal Japanese setting of Macbeth, Kurosawa's adaptation of Shakespeare's story is mightily effective. The Samurai background enhances the revelation of the murderous ambition of Washizu (Toshiro Mifune), while his wife Asaji, chills the blood with her manipulative scheming. The director's mastery of visual and dramatic technique makes it easy to understand why this was T.S.Eliot's favourite film.
