For the longest time now I've been wanting to access more of Kurosawa's works. I'm a huge fan of his masterpieces Rashomon and Seven Samurai (even though I didn't really care too much for Yojimbo), and I figured this would be a good place to continue in his filmography. First off, let me say I don't know the story of Macbeth too well; I haven't ever read the play though I have actually seen a prod... read more

First off, let me say I don't know the story of Macbeth too well; I haven't ever read the play though I have actually seen a production of it, so I do know the story though I don't actually have too deep of an understanding of the overall play, so that may have hindered my experience with this film. I thought that the play that I saw was really well done and overall really good, but in the middle it dragged and got somewhat dull, which is exactly what I thought of Throne of Blood.

I must say that on a technical si” read more

"Circa 1500 - 1573, the Sengoku Warring States Period. With civil war a constant fact of life, treachery, prevarication, and murder were almost daily occurrences during the Sengoku era all of which are depicted in Throne of Blood. "

Movie Reviews (part 9) (50 movies items)

" The Ups: Atmospheric and different take on "Macbeth" that manage to be more riveting and interesting than the original play. An excellent Mifune in the main role. One of the greatest death scenes in movie history. The Downs: A little too theatrical to my liking. The witch is more comical than scary. "
