Kurosawa’s transposition of Shakespeare’s Macbeth to sixteenth-century Japan is immensely successful in capturing the spirit of the original. A truly remarkable film combining beauty and terror to produce a mood of haunting power, Throne of Blood also shows Kurosawa’s familiar mastery of atmosphere, action, and the savagery of war.
