Throne of Blood Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One of the most celebrated screen adaptations of Shakespeare into film, Akira Kurosawa's Throne of Blood re-imagines Macbeth in feudal Japan. Starring Kurosawa's longtime collaborator Toshiro Mifune and the legendary Isuzu Yamada as his ruthless wife, the film tells of a valiant warrior's savage rise to power and his ignominious fall. With Throne of Blood, Kurosawa fuses one of Shakespeare's greatest tragedies with the formal elements of Japanese Noh theater to make a Macbeth that is all his own classic tale of ambition and duplicity set against a ghostly landscape of fog and inescapable doom.

Special Features:

New high-definition digital transfer
Audio commentary by Japanese-film expert Michael Jeck
Original theatrical trailer
New essay by Stephen Prince
Two alternative subtitle translations
