Throne of Blood ( Kumonosu-jou ) 
"Throne Of Blood" by Yojimbo
3.5/4 stars

Akira Kurosawa's eye for wonderful visuals comes to the fore once again in this stunning adaptation of Macbeth, which lends itself to a relocation to feudal Japan perfectly. I particularly liked the way he merged some wonderfully atmospheric camera techniques with the highly theatrical feel that was clearly heavily influenced by traditional Japanese Noh drama. Toshiro Mifune gives an incredibly intense performance as the general destroyed by his ambition, the subdued scenes between he and his manipulative wife are particularly memorable. And what an ending. Despite the fact that Kurosawa did not use a single word of dialogue from the Shakespearian play it was based upon, it is still easily the best adaptation of The Bard I have ever seen. Yet another classic.
