Akira Kurosawa's dramatic retelling of Macbeth sets the story in 16th century Japan. Filmed in black and white on mysterious, fog-shrouded Mt. Fuji, using a full-size castle constructed especially for the movie, Throne of Blood is a visual feast. Toshiro Mifune gives one of his finest performances as Washizu, the samurai caught between his conscience and his lust for power. This edition features a new transfer and more accurate subtitles.
