THRONE OF BLOOD (1957) A vivid and visceral adaptation of Macbeth, directed by Akira Kurosawa! 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.
