A vivid, visceral Macbeth adaptation, Throne of Blood, directed by Akira Kurosawa, sets Shakespeare’s definitive tale of ambition and duplicity in a ghostly, fog-enshrouded landscape in feudal Japan, fusing classical Western tragedy with formal elements taken from Noh theater to create an unforgettable cinematic experience.

A career high point for Akira Kurosawa — and one of the best film adaptations of a Shakespeare play.
