"23rd of September, DVD Ei parasta Kurosawaa, mutta silti erittäin toimiva pätkä. Kurosawa kuvaa teoksellaan, kuinka kunniallinen samuraisoturi muuttuu ajan myötä entistä itsekkäämmäksi ja ahneemmaksi, kun tietoisuus tulevasta painaa mieltä. Toshiro Mifunen roolihahmo ei kaihda rikollisiakaan keinoja päästäkseen vallassa yhä korkeammalle tasolle. Jos jostain pitää moittia, niin siitä, että yliluonnolliset teemat eivät sovi japanilaiseen versioon Shakespearen Macbethistä. Tunn"

My top list for samurai movies (30 movies items)

"Helvetistä siinneiden Pirullisten vuoksi keskittymiseni illan toista mustavalkoista taide-elokuvaa kohtaan oli aika minimissä, enkä toden totta seurannut Kurosawan Shakespear-filmatisointia niin hyvin, kuin olisi ollut suotavaa. Macbeth on tarinana itselleni tuiki tuntematon, mutta ihan kiintoisalta stoori ainakin japsien esittämänä tuntui. Visuaalisuuttakin on reippaasti, eikä näyttelyssäkään ole moittimista, eli pakkohan tämä vielä joku päivä on paremmin paneutuneena uusintakat"

"Third AK. Yes, I really like him and his pictures... Possibly Mifune's best performance in Kurosawa film and possibly also best Shakespeare adaptation."
