OF BLOOD (1957)
A vivid and visceral adaptation of Macbeth, directed by
Shakespeare’s definitive tale of ambition and duplicity
is set in a ghostly, fog-enshrouded landscape in feudal Japan. As a
hardened warrior who rises savagely to power, Toshiro Mifune gives an
animalistic performance, as does Isuzu Yamada as his ruthless wife.
