A must see for the fan of Kurosawa and the genre
on January 31, 2016
I have long been a fan of Shakespeare, and loved Kurosawa's work from the time I first saw Seven Samurai and Rashomon years ago. Not sure how it took me this long to see this, but Throne of Blood is amazing. The drama is stirring and the tension and suspense is palpable throughout. The "Lady Macbeth" role is creepy in the very best way - absolutely brilliant performance. Mifune was as good as in anything. This easily rivals Seven Samurai as my favorite Kurosawa film.
