Though Kurosawa doesn't quite bring that much new to the story of Macbeth (except for the unique setting,) he does interpret the story rather skillfully. The spirit scenes are appropriately luminescent and creepy, the acting portrays greed, jealousy, and obsession with furious fervor, and the use of shadows in the cinematography is brilliant.

Macbeth by way of Akira Kurosawa. As with Ran, Kurosawa adapts Shakespeare into feudal Japan and the result is a masterpiece. The tragedy is resplendent and the use of light & shadow is amazing. A must see for any fan of Japanese cinema.
